The emphasis on real data is popular with our [[sep:about:sponsors|sponsors]], who consist mainly of oil companies, geophysical contractors, and computer companies. We write biannual reports and meet with them twice a year. This provides students a forum for exchange of ideas with experts, as well as contact with potential future employers. A long list of sponsors also allows SEP to fund its students very well, and send them to a lot of conferences and meetings.

-All our research is fully [[sep:research:repdoc|reproducible]] in the true sense of the word. Most figures in any recent report or thesis can be regenerated totally from source code and raw data simply by clicking on a button in an electronic document. As well as being nice from a philosophy of science point of view, this also provides a great way of archiving work so it is readily available for other people, like new students, to use and build on.+All our research is fully [[sep:research:reproducible|reproducible]] in the true sense of the word.

-There are a variety of challenging classes, both within the department and elsewhere in the University. Although the Department course requirements are listed in the [[http://www.stanford.edu/dept/registrar/bulletin/bulletin.html|Stanford Bulletin]], you can take others you may find interesting - Stanford is a diverse university with world-class departments in everything from Computer Science to Modern Thought and Literature. Your research can take advantage of this diversity, too. Although SEP has had no joint projects with the Athletics department, there are ongoing research projects with other groups both within the department, like the Rock Physics group, or in other departments, like Petroleum Engineering.+There are a variety of challenging classes, both within the department and elsewhere in the University.
