Energy Resources Engineering

We teach courses and perform research relevant to the production and transformation of energy resources.

Undergraduate Program

ENERGY 101A: Energizing California

The Bachelor of Science degree provides a foundation for careers in many facets of the energy industry. The program represents an evolution toward a broader forward-looking energy curriculum, while still providing an Earth-sciences based engineering approach to energy resources.

One of the goals of the program is to provide experience integrating the skills developed in individual courses to address a significant design problem. In ENERGY 199 Senior Capstone Project and Seminar in Energy Resources, taken in the senior year, student teams identify and propose technical solutions for an energy-resource related problem of current interest.

Students must satisfy the University general education, writing, and language requirements. Engineering fundamentals courses and Energy Resources Engineering depth and elective courses must be taken for a letter grade.

Students may choose any faculty member from ERE to serve as their major advisor. In collaboration with their advisor, students will develop their individual course of study. The curriculum is structured with flexibility that allows students to explore energy topics of particular individual interest and to study abroad.



Please refer to the Stanford Bulletin for Energy Resources Engineering course listings and requirements.
