Why Aero/Astro at Stanford?
With a history rich with six Guggenheim Medal recipients and 14 living members of the National Academy of Engineering, our faculty and emeriti faculty continue to be among the most highly decorated in the world. However, it is because of our amazingly talented students that we continue to be ranked among the top of all aerospace engineering departments in the nation.
“ I tell students, you made it. You belong. ... ”
“ I joined thousands of people on a beach for a socially distanced rocket launch watch party. ... ”
“ When I was around 14, NASA landed the Curiosity rover on Mars and it was an aha moment for me. ... ”
Stanford’s Aeronautics and Astronautics department addresses a broad range of technologies to develop systems, design, and analysis methods to further our nation’s aerospace enterprise and improve society.
