Stanford students possess the ability to engage in multiple interests. The 650+ student organizations found across campus enrich the social, cultural and educational experiences of Stanford students, influence the larger University community and enhance the overall diversity found at Stanford. Several of these groups are of specific interest to EE students, including:
The graduate student body of the Electrical Engineering department at Stanford University aimed at improving student life and strengthening our communication with faculty and administration within the department. Its mission is to create an atmosphere of support as well as leverage resources for the academic and personal development of graduate students within the department.
Aims to provide a sense of community for women students in EE at Stanford. The group organizes Big Sister/Little Sister mentoring pairs, lunch meetings, special seminars, and social and outreach events to address women-specific issues and provide a place for networking among current graduate women and EE alumnae. As demonstrated at other universities, they expect that such programming will help improve retention of EE graduate women and benefit all members of the EE community.
A student-run organization at Stanford interested in the promotion of optical science and technology. Its mission is to provide exciting educational, networking, and outreach activities for the Stanford community. Anyone interested in optics is encouraged to attend their events.
