Handbook for Undergraduate Engineering Programs

  • A NEW, abbreviated version of ENGR 40 will be offered this spring: ENGR 40A, 3 units, 7 weeks of instruction. See ExploreCourses for more detail. Allowed for EE, MATSCI, MGTSC, CS, and all ENGR majors, though students may need to make up the extra 2 units by taking another ENGR Fundamentals or depth course. Not allowed for ME majors, who must take the regular ENGR 40 course, or for CEE students due to ABET rules.
  • Connect directly to the most recent 2012-13 versions of the Engineering Major Programs descriptions from this new page -- use link to majors at 1.3 in ToC
  • Printed copies of the 2012-13 Handbook can be picked up in 135 Huang (online versions on Handbook page)
  • Download a current program sheet from the Program Sheets page
  • Minor program sheets for the nine minor programs offered in the SoE are now here! See Navigation Bar
  • SoE Honors programs now have their own page!
  • Find links to math, science, fundamentals, and Technology in Society courses allowed for 2012-13 on Approved Courses page

 UG Handbook
This site contains the handbooks, program sheets, petitions, Opportunities for Students*, links to School of Engineering majors/departments, and lists of approved courses for the Undergraduate Engineering Programs at Stanford University. The handbooks are the definitive source for undergraduate engineering requirements at Stanford. Students may graduate using the requirements listed in any one Handbook that is published while they are undergraduates. Since requirements often change from year to year, it is important for you to reference the Handbook that you intend to follow (see Handbooks in Navigation panel). The Handbooks are available in pdf format on the Handbooks page.

In additional to curricular requirements, handbooks contain information about procedures for declaring an engineering major, transferring engineering coursework from another school, petitioning for waivers and substitutions for requirements (see Petitions in Navigation panel), and for navigating the administrative processes to graduate. They also describes important opportunities* and programs for engineering students, such as  for overseas studies, summer research fellowships, diversity programs, and career placement services.

We hope that you will find the handbooks informative and useful, and we are interested in any suggestions you may have for improvements. If you have any questions about engineering degree requirements or about any of the information in the handbooks, please don't hesitate to contact your advisor or come see us in the School of Engineering's Office Student Affairs, 135 Huang. You are always welcome in the Office of Student Affairs.
