Yale students get an excellent engineering preparation, and graduate with several additional dimensions. Unlike those at tech schools, our students take their non-engineering subjects in classes taught by renowned faculty and together with liberal arts majors whose focus is on social, political, economic, and other humanities areas. Our engineering students grow in the understanding of the complex social, political, economic and environmental implications of new technological products and processes. They also learn to communicate effectively. Not surprisingly, many of our graduates go on to establish outstanding records of achievement not only in technical fields but also in academia, business, government, and as leaders in their community.
