Dennis Gibson — Construction Management

Student Biography…

Dennis Gibson, or as most know him, DJ, was born in Philadelphia, PA  where he resided until the beginning of his college career at Penn State.  DJ has always shared an interest in construction since he was old enough to work, and decided to pursue his passion with enrollment in the Architectural Engineering Program at Penn State, where he will be graduating in May 2011 with a Bachelor Degree,  focusing in  Construction Management. 


DJ has been working in the construction field as a concrete laborer since the age of fourteen, but most recently was fortunate enough to  complete his second   construction management internship with Barton Malow Company.  In 2009 Mr. Gibson interned as an assistant  superintendent on the School of Education project at the College of William and Mary.   As a result of his success he was asked to return to Barton Malow in 2010 to intern as a project engineer on the Walt  Disney World Fantasyland Expansion at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, FL. 


Although he holds his work experience as one of his greatest  achievements, Mr. Gibson has also been involved with AE student  organizations such as the          Partnership for Achieving Construction  Excellence, Student Society of                Architectural Engineers, and the  American Concrete Institute.  Outside of school, DJ likes to keep busy with small masonry projects, as well as competitive weightlifting, motorsports, and golfing.
