Academy of Distinguished Alumni

The Maseeh College Academy of Distinguished Alumni was founded in 1997 with the mission to recognize and honor alumni who have attained excellence in the field of engineering or computer science. Members are community leaders and role models for future engineers and computer scientists. These individuals have given service to their profession and the community, and elevated the stature of the Maseeh College and PSU through their achievements.
