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.)"

Yale experts on dyslexia took part in a hearing on Sept. 18 in Washington, D.C. to examine the latest scientific research on the condition, which affects one out of every five people in the United States. The hearing was sponsored by the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.
Blood vessels need constant maintenance if they are to remain healthy. Yale researchers describe a key molecular fitness signal that prevents vessels from becoming narrow and developing dangerous plaques.
Small yet abundant, with complex and wildly diverse lifestyles, ants are everywhere, living lives mostly hidden from view. A new exhibition at the Yale Peabody Museum — a traveling show from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History — brings the lives of ants into clearer focus.
Yale University researchers are studying a potential new treatment that reverses the effects of pulmonary fibrosis, a respiratory disease in which scars develop in the lungs and severely hamper breathing.
