Letter from Robert Sinclair

Robert Sinclair

The health and vitality of our department and the quality of our research depend most heavily on the quality of our graduate students. It is one of our top goals to continue to attract the best and brightest students from the U.S. and around the world. We feel that the mixture of a core curriculum in material science and engineering fundamentals and leading-edge, independent research is exceptional preparation for future scientists and engineers.

The open, flexible environment coupled with the breadth of materials-related research at Stanford and the Bay Area lead to a fantastic array of materials research opportunities. Life as a graduate student is not totally about research and structured learning, however. Stanford University and the San Francisco Bay Area offer a host of artistic, athletic, social and cultural activities. We are looking for eager, bright, and motivated students to take advantage of these many opportunities. If this interests you, please apply.

Sincerely,
Robert Sinclair
Chair, Materials Science and Engineering
