Stanford's Global Engineering Design Innovation (GEDI) course draws corporate participation from a wide range of industries, markets, and geographical environments. Companies typically bring their most challenging problems, long-shot opportunities, and moonshot ideas for GEDI's high-performance teams to tackle. Our faculty and industry coaches work with graduate engineering students to analyze and explore ideas embodied in each company's initial design brief, often finding ways to push the envelope further than originally envisioned and probe the design space for breakthrough ideas.

Stanford is now accepting applications for 2023-24 global team projects.
