Stanford University


Stanford University is known to be the 3th best engineering school. I believe this school has great education to prepare me for an engineering career in the future. Also a reason is because I want to move out of state for college and I do know that tuition will be more expensive since I will be an out-of-state student but honestly, I willing to pay the price.


Stanford University was established in 1876. Former Governor Leland Stanford purchased 650 acres of Ranch San Fracisquito for a country home and began the development of hid Palo Alto Stock Farm. He Later bought adjoining properties totaling more than 8,000 acres.

Why Architecture?

I have personally always found enigeering interesting, especially architecture. My dad used to be an architect and would always ask about all the numbers he would write down on a paper and until now that I'm taking an engineering class i can understand all kinds of numbers. I still dont like algebra. Sometimes it's hard to find out some things like dimensions on blueprints. But, engineering is most of the time teamwork so you can work together to fingure it out.

Career Details

An average architect makes about $79,300 a year. An architect draws floor plans mostly for any type of structure that stands on Earth. Architects mostly have to draw plans a certain amount of time for a customer who wants something built. The customer will give the architect details of the building/house they want so then the architect can draw it as they wish. You need a Bachelor's Degree to become an engineer.
