  • 1974

    Our Humble Beginnings

    It all began in 1974. MAES was founded in Los Angeles at CSU Fullerton in 1974 to increase the number of Mexican Americans and other Hispanics in the technical and scientific fields. The idea to establish a professional society for Mexican American engineers originated with Robert Von Hatten, an aerospace electronics engineer with TRW Defense Space Systems in Redondo Beach, California. Mr. Von Hatten had for several years served as volunteer for programs directed at combating the alarming number of high school dropouts. He envisioned a national organization that would serve as a source for role models, address of the needs of its members, and become a resource for industry and students.

    MAES Co-Founders:

    Oscar Buttner (Rockwell International), Sam Buttner (Southern California Edison), Manuel Castro (Bechtel Power), Clifford Maldonado (Northrop Corporation), Sam Mendoza (California State University, Fullerton), Frank Serna (Northrop Corporation), Robert Von Hatten – TRW Defense Space Systems
