Stanford campus

Over 50 years after its founding, the Chemical Engineering department is in the middle of a dynamic expansion organized around its three areas of strategic focus: life, energy, and the environment. Every dollar contributed will go toward furnishing new labs, graduate fellowships for first-year students, and startup packages for our growing faculty.
