On April 21, 1987, a bronze bust was dedicated in the entryway of the Davies Auditorium at the Becton Engineering and Applied Science Center at Yale University. It was the culmination of a fund-raising and letter-writing campaign by a third grade class in Anne Arbor, Michigan. The class's teacher, John Wagner, presented the sculpture to Yale.

In 1894, Nikola Tesla received an honorary degree from Yale along with several other 19th-century leaders.
