Information for Industry

Stanford encourages close collaboration with companies and welcomes industry to participate in our research. Civil & Environmental Engineering has several Affiliate Programs that facilitate knowledge and technology transfer between industry and academia.

Join an Affiliate Program

Affiliate Programs in the School of Engineering have provided an avenue for industry to get involved with Stanford departments and faculty for 40 years. Membership in an Affiliate Program provides companies with facilitated access to research programs, faculty and students involved in topics of interest ranging from the specific to the interdisciplinary.

Corporate members can benefit from attending annual meetings and research symposia, receiving topical reports and publications, and conducting individual meeting with researchers. In some instances member companies have opportunities to recruit students at targeted events. From nanotechnology to social networking and clean tech to photonics, our more than 30 Affiliate Programs cover a wide variety of industry areas.
