Doctor Jose Cruz was born on September 17, 1932. He has been recognized for his scientific andtechnological contributions to electrical engineering through the development of several methodsfor the sensitivity analysis of dynamic systems with respect to parameters variations;establishment of the concept comparison sensitivity matrix that captures the effect of feedback on altering the influence of parameter variations on system output errors in multivariablefeedback system; and the maintenance of system optimality for a range parameter values evenwhen the feedback control structure is fixed.Dr. Cruz has immensely contributed to the improvement of the quality of engineering educationin the Philippines through: the Master of Engineering programs in several consortia of engineering schools he helped develop; the placement of many ESEP scholars in Ph.D. sandwich programs in the US; the arrangement for short visits and observations to the US by officials andscholars from the engineering faculty of various universities in the Philippines:·
