Disciplines

Yale offers six different disciplines between four engineering departments.

Biomedical Engineering

Yale has a long history of excellence in biomedical engineering. Recently, Yale celebrated the 150th anniversary of the incorporation of engineering as an academic program, and the University embarked on a major initiative in biomedical engineering, which recognizes the vital role that engineering now plays in medicine and the life sciences.

Professor James S. Duncan

Director of Undergraduate Studies

Chemical & Environmental Engineering

Study within the Department emphasizes fundamental engineering principles, innovation, global perspective, and leadership. Full advantage is taken of collaborative opportunities with Yale’s excellent programs in Engineering, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Environmental Sciences, Medicine, and Management.

Professor Michael Loewenberg

Director of Undergraduate Studies - Chemical Engineering

Professor Jordan Peccia

Director of Undergraduate Studies - Environmental Engineering

Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering is a vast field which encompasses numerous disciplines such as microelectronics, photonics, computer engineering, signal processing, control systems, and communications. Electrical Engineering at Yale attempts to create a new brand of electrical engineering student and our students enjoy a more balanced and well rounded education than their counterparts who attend technology-dominated schools. Thus, our students are better equipped to compete and lead in the global community of the 21st century.

Professor J. Rimas Vaisnys

Director of Undergraduate Studies

Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science

Mechanical engineering is among the most diversified of the traditional engineering disciplines. The mechanical engineer builds machines to extend our physical and mental capabilities and to convert traditional and novel energy sources into useful forms.
