This course will allow you to learn about the depth and breadth of energy research at Stanford, grow your personal cross-campus network, meet Stanford energy faculty, attend in-depth interactive elective classes of your choice, experience a team challenge, and build an interdisciplinary community across campus. An energy background is not required; students from all schools and departments are encouraged to apply.
