Most universities strive for interdisciplinary collaboration, but Yale brings a unique twist to such efforts. The School of Engineering & Applied Science collaborates 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.

Our faculty and researchers collaborate across school and departmental boundaries, and we encourage the same interdisciplinary focus among our graduate students with Yale's unique Advanced Graduate Leadership Program, and our undergraduates at the Center for Engineering Innovation & Design.
