Handbook for Undergraduate Engineering Programs

  • The UGHB 2013-14 PDF is now available on the Handbooks page, as are the Approved Course lists for Math, Science, Fundamentals, and TiS courses (on the Approved Courses page. Here you will find the degree requirements for the upcoming year. Note that some programs have new WIM courses, notably ME, PD, and BME (majors with a link have been updated for 2013-14). Check it out at the Stanford Bulletin site for the SoE Majors.
  • Consider some special GOING ABROAD opportunities for 2013-14; see Opportunities for Students page
  • Connect directly to the most recent versions of the Engineering Major Programs descriptions from this new page -- use link to majors at 1.3 in ToC. (As 2013-14 updates to individual programs come in, the changes will be made on these pages. So far updates for 2013-14 have been made to these program pages: AA, AD, AE, BioE, BME, CHEME, EE, EPHYS, MATSCI, MS&E, ME, and PD.)
  • Printed copies of the 2013-14 Handbook will be ready in mid-September, just in time for Frosh Orientation. As 2013-14 updates to individual programs come in, the revisions will be made on the Engineering Major Programs page (see link above).
  • 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.
