Set yourself apart with Stanford Online

Little girl with wings

You can gain access to a world of education through Stanford Online, the Stanford School of Engineering’s portal for academic and professional education offered by schools and units throughout Stanford University. Our robust catalog of degree programs, credit-bearing education, professional certificate programs, and free and open content is developed by Stanford faculty, enabling you to expand your knowledge, advance your career, and enhance your life.

Stanford Online is operated and managed by the Stanford Center for Professional Development (SCPD), the global and online education unit within Stanford Engineering. SCPD works closely with Engineering departments, programs, and centers to design and deliver engaging, high quality online, in-person, and blended learning experiences to both matriculated students and a worldwide audience of learners. SCPD also collaborates with many Stanford schools and centers to expand the Stanford Online catalog with university-wide offerings.
