Yale Engineer: Technical Skills + Humanities and Liberal Arts Focus

Yale students get an excellent engineering preparation, including strong technical training along with a deep understanding of the liberal arts. Collaboration is key, and it is seen within the School of Engineering & Applied Science as they partner closely with Yale’s world-class liberal arts programs as well as the School of Medicine, School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, and School of Management, with research efforts that examine both the scientific and the societal aspects of challenges to truly advance the human condition.

Many engineers are involved in Bio-Innovation, which uses the Biological or Physiological sciences as Technology. It can include Biotech, Diagnostics, Medtech, Biomaterials, Therapeutics, Pharma, BioPharma, SynBio. Learn more about attributes needed in BioInnovation.

Yale engineering graduates go on to establish outstanding records of achievement not only in technical fields but also in academia, business, government, and as leaders in their community. They work for companies across a broad spectrum, from Fortune 100 companies to Fortune 500 companies to NGO’s, start-ups, government, and the tech industry. They work in core engineering positions across all of Yale’s engineering disciplines (mechanical/materials science, electrical, chemical/environmental, biomedical) but they also take up roles in a broad range of functional areas, including data science, product management, consulting, and finance.
