LETTER FROM THE DEAN
What is Stanford Engineering’s place in theworld?It’s a question with two different answers.
Until recently, the literal answer to that questionwould be that Stanford Engineering is on the westside of the Stanford campus, spread out amongmany buildings and labs. That answer would thenbe followed by the question: What department areyou looking for?
