Kevin Wigton is a 5th year student enrolled in the Architectural Engineering program at Penn State. In May of 2010 Kevin will be graduating with an integrated Master and Bachelor of Architectural Engineering degree. As a structural engineering student Kevin has been able to maintain a 3.75 GPA and was recently recognized for being in the top 20% of his class with the induction into Phi Alpha Epsilon, the Architectural Engineering honor society at Penn State. In the fall of 2008 Kevin passed the Fundamentals of Engineering exam and will receive EIT status upon graduation.

Outside of the classroom Kevin has pursued opportunities to further his understanding of structural engineering and the building industry. As an intern he worked with Gillespie Engineering as a structural designer and LPCiminelli as part of the project management team. Both internships offered irreplaceable professional learning experiences. During the summer of 2009 Kevin worked as a research assistant at Penn State responsible for test preparation of fiber reinforced concrete beams in seismic design applications. This experience provided insight into the material research that structural engineers rely on.

Following graduation Kevin aims to pursue a career as a structural engineer focused on obtaining his Professional Engineer’s license. For additional information about Kevin as well as contact information please review the full resume above.
