On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Department of Electrical Engineering, I welcome you to Graduate study at Stanford University. We hope you will have a stimulating and enjoyable experience in our Department and at Stanford.
This handbook contains data and information useful to all. The members of the EE Administrative Staff are familiar with the many details of our operation and are available to help you by answering questions and providing further information. Information for new students at Stanford can be found on the Web at www.stanford.edu/group/orientation/.
Our large graduate operation is both exciting and challenging. You are a member of a highly able, highly motivated, and highly select group. You will find your graduate colleagues a stimulating group and interaction with them is a valuable component of your professional growth.
You will be assigned a faculty adviser who will be your primary source of counsel on your academic program. During the autumn registration period the Department Laboratories will hold orientation programs. Information on the research interests of our various faculty, and on the spectrum of research activities available to our graduate students, is included in this handbook. The information in this handbook along with a wealth of additional information, including accumulated wisdom from past students on planning academic programs and preparing for the Ph.D. qualifying examination, may be found in the Department World Wide Web Pages, beginning at ee.stanford.edu
The faculty and staff of Stanford's Department of Electrical Engineering look forward to interacting with you, both inside and outside the classroom.
Department Vice Chair
