Handbook for Undergraduate Engineering Programs

Exploring aspects of technology in literature plus writing: These three WISE classes have NO PREREQUSITES and are capped at 6 students, allowing for detailed commentary and one-on-one feedback on your writing.

Looking for help in writing or presenting? The Technical Communication Program (TCP) is here for you. An expert tutor will help you communicate your ideas clearly and effectively--and even prep you to nail that job interview. Contact Mary McDevitt <> to schedule an appointment to go over your paper, proposal, résumé, or any other written or oral presentation.

 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.
