How to Declare

Declaring BS in Aeronautics and Astronautics

Stanford encourages undergraduate students to spend their first two years exploring the university's tremendous wealth of courses and programs. This allows Stanford students to explore a wide range of possible major fields before committing to a specific one. Once convinced that Aeronautics and Astronautics is the appropriate field, current students may declare the major during sophomore or junior year. The major is open to all Stanford undergraduate students in good academic standing.

Stanford freshmen and sophomores who want to pursue aeronautics and astronautics should follow the course plan prescribed in the SoE Undergraduate Handbook. Taking the appropriate math and sciences courses in the early years will be a great help throughout the undergraduate program. We also encourage you to take some of our Freshmen and Sophmore Seminars.

Stanford undergraduates who wish to declare Engr-BS in Aeronautics and Astronautics as their major should stop by the Aero/Astro Student Services Office. Interested students may also wish to consult with an undergraduate advisor about declaring this major.

Instructions for declaring

  • Complete the program sheet and have it signed by your Aero/Astro faculty advisor. You may ask any Aero/Astro faculty member to be your advisor.
