The Product Design program teaches a design process that encourages creativity, craftsmanship, and personal expression, aesthetics, and emphasizes brainstorming and need finding. The course work provides students with the skills necessary to carry projects from initial concept to completion of working prototypes. Students studying product design follow the basic mechanical engineering curriculum with some additional course work in studio art and psychology. For a detailed list of requirements, go to the Undergraduate Majors Page in the School of Engineering section of the Stanford Bulletin.
Develop your ability to integrate engineering and architecture in ways that blend innovative architectural design with cutting-edge engineering technologies.
Civil and Environmental Engineering
This pre-professional program balances the fundamentals common to many specialties in civil engineering and allows for concentration in structures and construction or environmental and water studies.
The Engineering Physics program is designed for students who have an interest in and an aptitude for both engineering and physics. Students begin with a year of mathematics and calculus-based physics, and then proceed to depth courses in physics and engineering, as well as elective courses in a selected specialty area (Aerospace Physics, Biophysics, Computational Science, Electromechanical System Design, Energy Systems, Materials Science, Photonics, or Renewable Energy).
Immerse yourself in the craft, culture, and theory of current fine art practices, prepare for a successful career as a visual artist.
