YSEA is a proud sponsor of the Yale Scientific Magazine.

Welcome to the official YSEA Members Site!

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.

YSEA Volunteer, James Lockman '89, Recognized with 2017 Adobe Founders' Award

By Eli YSEA on September 21st, 2017

Congratulations to James Lockman '89, past President of YSEA and longtime YSEA and FIRST Robotics volunteer, who recently received Adobe Systems Incorporated's Founders' Award. The award is given each year to twelve Adobe employees around the globe who exemplify Adobe's core values.

According to his colleagues at Adobe:

"[James] brings passion, energy and a sense of fun to work every day. His knowledge is vast, across Creative and Experience technologies. He actively looks for how our solutions can drive the best innovative value for our customers. James is a great team member and looks out for those he works with. An example would be making sure internal and external communications are accessible to his coworkers with visual impairments so that everyone feels included and successful. James also gives back to his community actively judging robot and design contests to create the next group of innovative folks and imbues upon them his irrepressible energy and passion. Adobe is better with James."

His colleagues at YSEA agree!
