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 researchers have found that the lactate component of a common saline solution used in hospitals may have anti-inflammatory effects that can reduce injury to major organs. The finding has clinical implications for the treatment of pancreatitis, kidney injury, strokes, and even heart attacks. The study is published online in the journal Gastroenterology.
Scientists at Yale University have devised a dramatically faster way of identifying and characterizing complex alloys known as bulk metallic glasses (BMGs), a versatile type of pliable glass that’s stronger than steel.
Ketamine, an anesthetic sometimes abused as a street drug, increases the synaptic connections between brain cells and in low doses acts as a powerful antidepressant, Yale researchers have found. However, stress has the opposite effect, shrinking the number of synaptic spines, triggering depression.
