To find out more about the Engineering Physics major and pre-major advising, contact physics Professors Pat Burchat ( or engineering Professor Mark Cappelli ( .

The student services specialist for Engineering Physics is Darlene Lazar (

Additionally, the advisors for each specialty are listed on their respective page.

How to Declare

  1. Make a pre-major advising appointment with Prof. Pat Burchat at in Physics to discuss math and physics requirements, the
    selection of a specialty in Engineering Physics, and choosing an advisor.
  2. Declare the Engineering Physics subplan on Axess: select “Engineering” as your major and  “Engineering Physics” as your subplan.
  3. Send an email notice to Darlene Lazar, Student Services Specialist, at Her office is located in Huang 135. In your email, indicate a preference for a major advisor, if any. She will reply to confirm your advisor choice.
  4. Print your unofficial Stanford transcript from Axess.
  5. Download the Engineering Physics Program Sheet from the School of Engineering web site at Complete the Program Sheet, indicating how you plan to fulfill the major requirements (or do this when you meet with your advisor)
  6. Make an appointment with your advisor to discuss your program. Have your advisor sign the Program Sheet. Your program proposal may change as you progress in the program; submit revisions in consultation with your advisor. (Submit an initial Program Sheet during the quarter in which you declare, and a final Program Sheet at least two quarters before you graduate.)
  7. Get AP or transfer credit approval from the SoE Dean’s Office of Student Affairs in 135 Huang, if applicable.
  8. Return the signed forms to Darlene Lazar in Engineering, Huang 135.
  • Note: The online version of the UGHB is considered the definitive and final version of SoE requirements for each major. Since corrections or updates may have been made after this Handbook was published in August 2010, download the online EPHYS program sheet from to ensure you are using an accurate major plan.
  • Note: You must use a program sheet from a year you are enrolled at Stanford.
