Adding an MS Degree

Current Stanford graduate students in a department outside of EE may be eligible to add the MS in EE. Also, students can transfer from their current graduate department to EE for an MS degree. This is called a Graduate Authorization Petition.


Please consult the Graduate Program Authorization Petition page on the Registrar's website for eligibility requirements for the petition.

Please note that our department requires students to have completed a minimum of two (2) quarters (excluding summer) of full-time study before adding a degree in EE. For example, if you entered Stanford in autumn quarter, the earliest term for which you can apply is spring quarter of that academic year.

Students with a technical background in computer science, engineering, mathematics, or the hard sciences are welcome to apply.
