Courses offered by the School of Engineering are listed under the subject code ENGR on Stanford's Explore Courses website. Each department listed below also offers courses under the subject codes AA, BIOE, CHEMENG, CEE, CME, CS, EE, MS&E, MATSCI, and ME.

The School of Engineering offers undergraduate programs (see Undergraduate Programs tab above) leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science (B.S.), programs leading to both B.S. and Master of Science (M.S.) degrees, other programs leading to a B.S. with a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in a field of the humanities or social sciences, dual-degree programs with certain other colleges, and graduate curricula (see Graduate Programs tab above) leading to the degrees of M.S., Engineer, and Ph.D.

The school has nine academic departments: Aeronautics and Astronautics, Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Management Science and Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. These departments and one interdisciplinary program, the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering, are responsible for graduate curricula, research activities, and the departmental components of the undergraduate curricula.

In research where faculty interest and expertise embrace both engineering and the supporting sciences, there are numerous interdisciplinary research centers and programs within the school as well as several interschool activities, including the Army High Performance Computing Research Center, Biomedical Informatics Training Program, Center for Integrated Systems, Center for Work, Technology, and Organization, Collaboratory for Research on Global Projects, National Center for Physics-Based Simulation in Biology, Center for Position, Navigation, and Time, the Energy Modeling Forum, the NIH Biotechnology Graduate Training Grant in Chemical Engineering, and the Stanford Technology Ventures Program. Energy Resources Engineering (formerly Petroleum Engineering) is offered through the School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences.

The School of Engineering's Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (also known as "the" ) brings together students and faculty in engineering, business, education, medicine, and the humanities to learn design thinking and work together to solve big problems in a human-centered way.

The Woods Institute for the Environment brings together faculty, staff, and students from the schools, institutes and centers at Stanford to conduct interdisciplinary research, education, and outreach to promote an environmentally sound and sustainable world.

Global Engineering Programs (GEP) offers a portfolio of international opportunities for Stanford engineering students. Current opportunities focus on self-designed engineering internships. These opportunities enhance engineering education by providing students with an opportunity to learn about technology and engineering in a global context, to build professional networks, and to gain real world experience in a culturally diverse and international environment. Need-based financial aid is available to undergraduate students to ensure that GEP programs are inclusive. GEP programs evolve each year so students are encouraged to check the GEP website regularly for updated opportunities and details including application deadlines.

Instruction in Engineering is offered primarily during Autumn, Winter, and Spring quarters of the regular academic year. During the Summer Quarter, a small number of undergraduate and graduate courses are offered.
