Yogen earned a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Stanford, where he was one of Vint Cerf's graduate students and co-authored the first TCP Specification (RFC 675, INWG 72) in 1974. He received a B.Tech. in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay where he was recently honored as a Distinguished Alum.

Upon graduating from Stanford he went to work with Bob Metcalfe and others at Xerox where he was a member of the original Star workstation and Ethernet development teams, and played an instrumental role in creating the 10 MBPS Ethernet Specification with DEC and Intel in 1980 that resulted in the creation of the IEEE 802.3 LAN standard.
