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.
Energy Resources Engineering
Gain engineering skills while also exploring the many facets of the energy industry including renewable energy resources, oil and gas recovery, geothermal engineering, and more. The program allows students flexibility in exploring the evolution of energy, while providing an earth sciences based approach to energy resources.
Mechanical Engineering encompasses elements from a wide array of disciplines built around the themes of biomedicine, computational engineering, design, energy, and multiscale engineering.
