Welcome to KSEA South Texas,


KSEA South Texas Chapter was established in 1972, one year after KSEA Headquarter was established. As one of oldest local chapters, we have more than 350 members registered around South Texas region including Houston, Galveston, and College Station. Our principal objective is to promote prosperity of the community of Korean American Scientists and Engineers in South Texas region.


To serve members in KSEA South Texas Chapter, we have conducted several specific events in every year. For examples, we have performed National Mathematics and Science Competition, Member Picnic, West Golf Regional Conference, and Young Professional Forum with KOEA. For the young generation, in addition, we have supported number of events in our Student Chapters in Texas A&M, University of Houston, Baylor College of Medicine, University of Texas at Houston and Rice University to promote for their career development.


Collectively, we have worked with each of you to help your excellent achievement in our chapter. KSEA South Texas is an open society. As such, we always value your input and your ideas. If you want to be an officer or take on a more active role in our chapter, please contact any of KSEA-South Texas officers.


Again, welcome to KSEA South Texas Chapter.

My Experience with KSEA

I joined KSEA-ST Chapter almost 15 years ago. At that time, the chapter was more like a family gathering group sharing greetings and daily life events. We, mostly with spouse, gathered once a quarter and listened to the guest speaker's talk on variety subjects such as health, retirement plan, public speech, etc. We were family oriented and had good relationship among members and their families. The members came from many different fields; architects, engineers, teachers, medical doctors, students, etc.

Now the chapter's atmosphere is a little changed - member oriented than family oriented, more young members, and more professionalism, etc. However, the main spirit remains the same; (1) networking by sharing information on technical and personal experience and (2) encouraging the 2nd generation of Korean-Americans. Please remember that the KSEA-ST Chapter is the first chapter which started the academy contest in all states.

As a KSEA member, you will gain lots of experiences through other members, programs, and activities. Personally, I could meet lots of people from many different fields through KSEA organized conferences, forums, and other events. I believe that this extensive networking helps my professional career and achievement. Also, working as a KSEA volunteer makes myself pride and improves my social behavior. I hope you and I could improve our community and help our next generation to be a world leader.
