-Student Bio-

Shawn Brandt is currently in his 5th year of study in the Architectural Engineering Program at Penn State University. He is pursuing a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering Degree and will graduate in May 2010. During his years at Penn State, Mr. Brandt has shown great interest in all areas of Architectural Engineering, but found himself truly passionate about the structural systems aspect.

During the summer of 2007, Shawn took part in the Sede di Roma study abroad program. The 2-month summer semester in Rome, Italy made it possible for him to achieve a minor in Architectural Studies. This invaluable experience has had a lasting impression on Shawn by challenging him to work constructively with teams and understand the beauty of cultural differences.

Mr. Brandt spent the following summer gaining real world experience in a professional setting. He worked for Baker, Ingram, & Associate, a structural engineering company in Lancaster Pennsylvania. At Baker, Ingram, and Associates Shawn had the opportunity to experience first hand many aspects of the structural design process.

When not fully engrossed in academics, Shawn enjoys exploring developments in the subject of technology, sustainability and its incorporation in buildings and transportation.  Mr. Brandt looks forward to working and making a positive impact in the field of architectural engineering, ideally combining his work and hobbies to become successful.
