Building Innovative Solutions
Problem solvers and innovators—at Yale’s School of Engineering & Applied Science (SEAS), faculty members and students put technology to work for people. They bring cutting-edge technology, computation, and applied science to bear on the problems that matter most, alongside colleagues in every discipline at Yale. Your gifts to SEAS can accelerate critical research and teaching—and bring us closer to solving humanity’s greatest challenges.
By pursuing an engineering education within one of the world’s most renowned liberal arts institutions, Yale students gain a fundamental knowledge of engineering and applied science, along with a strong understanding of the complex social, political, economic, and environmental implications of our work. We call them Y-shaped engineers, a unique breed of thinker with the breadth, depth, and purpose to develop complete solutions to global problems. Your support of undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships helps us to attract the very best people to our programs and to prepare them for careers of real consequence.
