Biographical Sketch

Stephen Lumpp is currently in his 5th year in the Architectural Engineering Program at Penn State University.  Growing up in western Pennsylvania, Stephen always dreamed of attending Penn State and his decision to major in architectural engineering was backed by his strengths in math, science and art.  In May of 2009, he will graduate with an integrated Bachelor/Master of Architectural Engineering degree, with an emphasis in structural systems and a minor in Architecture.

Each summer since 2003, Stephen worked first for a construction company and then as an intern for a couple of AE firms learning the basic principles of the building process.  This past summer, Stephen interned at Structura-Inc., a structural design firm in Rockville, Maryland.  With Structura-Inc, he worked on several different projects with a team gaining valuable knowledge in the design field.  In 2007, Stephen was enrolled in Penn State’s Education Abroad program in Rome, Italy where he studied architecture and traveled across the country. Upon graduation, Stephen will gain EIT status and is hoping to pursue his Professional Engineer’s license while working for a structural design firm.

Outside of his academic life, Stephen is involved in other activities through the university. He is currently an Intramural Supervisor and has refereed intramural games the past two years. When he is not refereeing, Stephen shows leadership by accepting the role of captain of various intramural teams such as softball, flag football and basketball. He also enjoys golf, running, lifting and investing in the stock market.
