College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

An engineering education at Yale prepares a student for pursuing a career in engineering, for successful graduate study resulting in a Ph.D., for management of high tech enterprises, and for civic leadership.

Yale's demanding engineering education is significantly enhanced by courses in the humanities, social sciences, the arts, and foreign languages, which engineering majors take alongside humanities majors. The resulting broad education enables an impressive number of Yale Engineering graduates to be successful in their careers and to assume positions of leadership in many segments of society.

The School of Engineering & Applied Science offers majors in Biomedical, Chemical, Electrical, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering. Each major provides many options. Engineering students may also pursue engineering-related majors in Electrical Engineering/Computer Science, Computer Science, and Applied Mathematics. A number of students choose to graduate with a double major, for example, Engineering and Music/Economics/Psychology.

At Yale, it is faculty, not graduate students, who teach undergraduates. The faculty-to-senior ratio is approximately one to one, and students enjoy much individual guidance. Faculty not only supervise student projects but also involve them in their own research. Faculty acknowledge their student researchers in published research papers, which means that some students graduate with their name on scientific publications.

Engineering has a 160-year history at Yale (1852-2012). The first Engineering Ph.D. in the U.S. was awarded at Yale, in 1863. The recipient was J. Willard Gibbs, who went on to become a leading scientist of the nineteenth century.

All applications go through Undergraduate Admissions at Yale College. Students declare their major by the end of their Sophomore/beginning of their Junior year. For specific application requirements see the Institution Profile, Section 5. Institution Admission Information.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

For those students whose native language is not English and who have not received at least two years of their secondary education in an English medium curriculum, Yale may require the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Students may submit the IELTS in lieu of the TOEFL. Either the SAT I and two SAT II Subject Tests, or the ACT, is required, with only two exceptions. Students whose home countries (e.g. mainland China) do not have a testing center are, of course, exempt. In addition, students enrolled in A-level programs may use completed A-level results as a substitute for the SAT II Subject Tests on a one-for-one basis, provided official test results arrive at Yale by February. No other substitutions are acceptable. Apart from that, all requirements and fees are almost the same as for resident U.S. citizens. For further information, go to: http://www.yale.edu/admit/international/application.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as those for Foreign Students.

Residency Requirements

Greater than 2 years.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Yale accepts a limited number of transfer students from other colleges and universities. In recent years, around 800 students a year have applied and only 18-35 have been accepted. Transfer students enter either the Sophomore or Junior year and must enroll at Yale for a minimum of two years (4 terms) in order to qualify for the B.A. or B.S. degree. The Admissions Committee places primary emphasis on college record, reasons for transfer, and recommendations from college faculty and administrators. The secondary school record, extracurricular interests, and work experience are also given weight. Personal interviews are not used in the evaluation of transfer candidates.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
