Founded in 1914, YSEA is one of the oldest university alumni organizations in the world with a focus on issues in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Our mission is to connect alumni with students, the University, and each other to strengthen the Yale science and engineering community.
While approximately half of our members hold science degrees, and a similar number hold engineering degrees, some of our members are musicians, writers, or other humanities graduates. We're interdisciplinary: science, engineering, and society all influence each other, and our members care about how the pieces fit together.
We hope that you will find this website to be a useful tool. Thanks for visiting!
"Look for Yale Engineering at the FIRST Championships this week in St. Louis -- we'll be on Scholarship Row and admitted students will be invited to a reception with the Yale Science and Engineering Association. Alumni and Yale students in the area should contact YSEA to volunteer or attend events. See you in St. Louis! (FIRST alumni currently at Yale pose with Dean Kamen & his mom last week in the Yale Center for Engineering Innovation & Design.)"

Schools that implement strong nutrition standards for snacks sold at school increase student meal participation and school revenue, according to a study by the Yale Rudd Center and the Harvard School of Public Health. The study, published in the American Journal of Public Health, provides support for efforts to implement strong national nutrition standards for all food sold at school while promoting student participation in the National School Lunch Program.
Dr. Lieping Chen, newly appointed as the United Technologies Corporation Professor in Cancer Research, focuses his research on developing new treatment options for cancer. His laboratory discovered the B7-H1/PD-1 immune inhibitory pathway and established the principle of cancer therapy by blocking this pathway.
