Graduate Admissions, Department of Electrical Engineering

I served as Associate Chair of the Electrical Engineering (EE) Department and Chair of the EE Graduate Admissions Committee from 1996 until 2000. I remained a member of the EE Graduate Admissions Committee (until changing to emeritus status in Sept 2003), but Professor R. Fabian Pease took over chairmanship of the Committee and he now has primary responsibility for EE graduate admissions. Prof. Pease's email address is pease@jumpjibe.stanford.edu, but for most matters dealing with EE graduate admissions it is best, initially, to contact either Ms. Debbie Peterson or the director of Graduate Admissions, Mr. Rafael Ulate. Some contact information is given below.

You might be interested to know that each application for admission is reviewed by the graduate admissions staff and by at least one other EE faculty member in addition to the Chair of the admissions committee. In many cases applications are circulated to specific faculty members for their additional opinions. Everything is looked at: academic record, letters of recommendation, statement of purpose, and test results. It is a time consuming process, but we are heavily committed to identifying the best graduate students to work with the EE faculty. The one instruction given to me when I was appointed chairman was to identify and recruit the very best EE students in the world, and that is still the goal of the EE Department.

The key person for you to deal with, if you are a graduate student applying for admission to the EE department, is:

Ms. Debbie Peterson
Admissions Specialist, EE Graduate Admissions
Stanford University, Packard Building, Room 172

U.S.A.
Phone:
(650) 726-2070
(650) 723-1882 (fax)

Ms. Peterson can answer all your enquires regarding the status of your application; she is very efficient.

If you have enquires concerning decisions made by the EE graduate admissions committee, or financial aid, you might wish to contact:

Ms. Debbie Bryan
