John Maydonovitch M.S. '73 is one of four recipients of the 2014 Distinguished Engineering Alumni Award, presented by Santa Clara's School of Engineering, for distinguished accomplishments in service to his profession, community, and the University.
As chair of the Industry Advisory Board, he has provided outstanding leadership and secured donations to support engineering programs. In 1999, he established two awards to honor the late professor Gerald Markle, founder of the Applied Mathematics Department—one recognizing excellence in teaching, and one supporting student scholarship. As CEO of MCE, a local manufacturing company, he regularly recruits Santa Clara engineering students for internships, providing important mentoring and job experience, while exemplifying the Jesuit model of giving back.
