Charlie Haack, LEED AP

Charlie Haack is a fifth year architectural engineering student at the Pennsylvania State University. In December of 2009, Charlie will graduate with a Bachelor and Master of Architectural Engineering with a focus in mechanical systems. Charlie passed the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED-NC) Exam in August of 2008 and is a LEED Accredited Professional.  Charlie also plans to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam before graduation.

Charlie has obtained an internship with an engineering or design firm in the Washington, DC area for every summer since attending Penn State. His first summer he worked at Dewberry & Davis doing FEMA Flood Plain Mapping. He served as an intern in the architectural design firm PSA-Dewberry after his sophomore summer. During his third summer he was a mechanical design intern for CCRD Partners.. Most recently he worked for KTA Group Engineering, a mechanical, plumbing and electrical design firm. Charlie is a student member of American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

During the Fall of 2007, Charlie had the opportunity to travel to Leeds, England for the semester. There he studied at the University of Leeds and had the chance to travel throughout the United Kingdom and Europe extensively. Charlie also serves as a teaching assistant for the Fall of 2008 for Fundamentals of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (AE 310).

Charlie's interest in sustainable design and high performance buildings leads him to aspire to working at a design or policy consulting level promoting energy efficiency in buildings.
