About Christopher Putman

Christopher Putman is currently in his fifth year of study in the Architectural Engineering Program at The Pennsylvania State University.  In December 2011, he will graduate with an Integrated Bachelor/Master of Architectural Engineering degree, with a focus on mechanical systems.  Christopher is a member of various professional and student organizations including the Architectural Engineering Institute (Student Society of Architectural Engineers) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

During the past five summers, Christopher completed internships at Bechtel Power Corporation, a business unit of Bechtel Corporation. Bechtel Corporation is the top-ranked contractor by Engineering News Record and the largest engineering company in the United States.  During his internships, Christopher has spent most of his time in the Power Plant Design group performing drafting, Inter-Disciplinary Coordination, and Detailed Piping Design for five different power plants in the United States.  Christopher has successfully completed the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam and will assume EIT status upon graduation.

After graduation, Christopher is planning to continue working with Bechtel in the power engineering business and will work towards earning his Professional Engineering license.  Bechtel provides the opportunity to work with the world’s best engineers and international travel, which is something he looks forward to.
