Johnathan Peno is in his 5th year of Architectural Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University. He will graduate in December 2011 with an integrated Bachelor/Master of Architectural Engineering Degree, with a focus on mechanical systems. Johnathan is a standing member of several student organizations including, Phi Alpha Epsilon Architectural Engineering Honors Society and The National Society of Collegiate Scholars.

Johnathan has held intern positions for the past four summers with Mueller  Associates, a nationally recognized AE firm and PBCI-Engineering, a commercial MEP design-build company. These internship opportunities have provided Johnathan with a great deal of experience and a strong understanding for the MEP industry. Johnathan passed the FE Exam in October 2009 and will gain EIT status upon graduation. Johnathan is looking forward to the challenges facing building engineers today and continuing to learn while working as an engineer at a mechanical firm. 

Outside of academics Johnathan is involved in several student organizations. Johnathan holds a position as an AE Envoy, a student ambassador organization in which architectural engineering students give tours, answer emails, and serve as a link to any perspective students and their families. Johnathan also participates in a number of intramural activities including football and basketball. In his free time Johnathan volunteers as a referee at a local youth basketball program. Johnathan enjoys sports, hunting, snowboarding, and being  outdoors.
