Beth Bennett

Beth Bennett graduated from Yale (Morse Class of 1991) with a double major in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Math.  She has stayed at Yale ever since, earning her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in 1997 and subsequently rising through the research ranks and the non-ladder teaching ranks to her current position of Senior Lecturer.  Dr. Bennett teaches various courses in Engineering & Applied Science and Mechanical Engineering.  She enjoys meeting students (and other people as well!) and chatting about academic and non-academic pursuits.

Profession and title: 
Senior Lecturer of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science
Interests: 

In her spare time, Dr. Bennett reads mysteries and spy novels, and she and her husband enjoy renovating their home, which is a never-ending source of interesting DIY projects.

Dr. Bennett would be happy to discuss Yale’s engineering and applied math programs, what engineering research involves (i.e., what to expect if you are doing a semester or a summer of research), and what to expect when applying to and attending engineering grad school. Conversations about what Morse was like 35 years ago are also welcome!

Areas for involvement with Morse students: 
Advising and mentoring for upperclassmen
Career advising
