Handbook for Undergraduate Engineering Programs

The UG Handbook website will be renewed for 2017-18 soon. We are changing to a new platform and this site cannot be updated separately. Stay tuned! In the meantime, check the Stanford Bulletin/Explore Degrees Majors page for 17-18 degree requirements.

Areas of Study in Engineering + Undergraduate Documents for ENGR Students + How to Petition Transfer Credit + 4-Year Plans of Study + ...

can be found on the pages of this website. Use the Navigation bar to the left or see below for some page links. If you are thinking of applying to Stanford, check out the Prospective Students page for basic answers and useful links.

 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.
