Stanford Engineering

So when you're applying to colleges, you obviously want to have a theme/angle/hook/etc.
Stanford has a major called Product Design. Product Design is basically a concentration under mechanical engineering.

When I'm applying, I need to list 3 majors I'm interested in.
If I list Product Design, do you think admissions would think of me as an engineering person?

The reason why I'm wondering is that applying to Stanford as engineering is competitive. (I know you can switch your major once you're in, etc.) But I wonder if declaring Product Design might be better because it seems less common, and doesn't immediately seem like engineering.

But my main question is: If I list Product Design, do you think admissions would think of me as an engineering person?
