The Yale School of Engineering & Applied Science offers undergraduate and graduate classes and degrees in electrical engineering, chemical engineering, environmental engineering, biomedical engineering, and mechanical engineering and materials science. There are strong research programs in molecular engineering, combustion, microelectronics, materials, medical imaging and nanoscience. Yale Engineering was ranked Number 1 among federally funded U.S. universities in 2007 in faculty publication citation impact for the period from 2001 to 2005 based on average citations per paper.[1] Yale Engineering had also been ranked Number 1 from 1997 to 2001.[2] Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering at Yale were both ranked in the top ten in the U.S. according to the scholarly activity index of the Chronicle of Higher Education.[3] The United States National Research Council 2010 report granted Yale's Biomedical Engineering and Environmental Engineering departments S rankings of 2-11 and 1-2 respectively. Yale Engineering also has the second lowest student to faculty ratio in the U.S. [4]

Malone Engineering Center


[8] with the Department of Mechanical Engineering becoming the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, the Department of Chemical Engineering becoming the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, and the Department of Applied Physics leaving the School of Engineering to become an independent department within the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.


  • Mason Laboratory (1911) [9]
  • Dunham Laboratory (1912) Henry G. Morse. Also originally built for Sheffield, it was the gift of Austin C. Dunham. This Collegiate Gothic building includes laboratories, class rooms and offices. Addition added in 1958 (office of Douglas Orr).[10]
  • Becton Engineering and Applied Science Center (1970) Marcel Breuer. Built from pre-cast concrete panels, Becton contains offices, laboratories, a cafe, and an auditorium. Funded in part by a donation from Henry P. Becton.[11]
  • Malone Engineering Center (2005) Cesar Pelli. This triangular building was funded in part by John C. Malone and built with a limestone veneer and a glass curtain wall. Malone contains laboratories for research and teaching. The building fronts the Farmington Canal[12]
