Institutional History

Abstract

Stanford University opened in 1891, with the Department of Physics among the very first departments at the new University. In its first years, the Department of Physics offered five courses in physics - laboratory and classroom. Today, in addition to research in the Physics Department and at SLAC, graduate students have access to research projects in Applied Physics, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, and collaborative efforts with the Medical School.
