Current Undergraduate Students
Thank you for being part of the Stanford Electrical Engineering community! Here you will find links to helpful information during your time as a Stanford undergraduate student.
Electrical Engineering is a very broad major, covering electronics, new devices, and hardware; information systems and signal processing; and integrated systems driven by both hardware and software. EE undergraduates get to build all kinds of very cool, sophisticated systems. They learn about a range of cutting-edge electronics and devices, and they make smart algorithms and signal processing with a broad range of applications.
