To declare, you will need the following documents:
Select an advisor
Your academic advisor is a School of Engineering faculty member who will provide mentorship and guidance during your Stanford career. Additionally, as the BMC major requires independent research, your academic advisor can help you find a research mentor, and in the case that you are unable to find a mentor agrees to serve as your default research advisor.
Because BMC is in the School of Engineering, the academic advisor must hold an appointment with a School of Engineering department. You may declare a coadvisor, whose appointment may be outside the School of Engineering.
