"Getting students excited about the things that they’re going to be able to do with an EE degree is I think a great introduction to the major," Alex Omid-Zohoor M.S. ’10, EE Ph.D. student and undergraduate advising TA.
Electrical engineers make the technologies and systems that communicate, store and process information. They harness the fundamental forces of nature to serve everyday needs, whether this involves creating a computer based on carbon nanotubes, implanting sensors deep inside the human body or inventing next generation memory chips. Electrical engineers change the world. Our new curriculum gives Stanford students a strong foundation in mathematics and physics while quickly immersing them in the exciting applications made possible by EE.
