Student Bio & Resume

Kathryn Gromowski, better known as Kade, is originally from Milwaukee, WI. In May 2011, she will graduate from Penn State University with an Integrated Bachelor/Master of Architectural Engineering with honors and an emphasis in structures. Kade is also eligible for Engineer in Training (EIT) status upon graduation. For her, education is a life-long process, and she looks forward to furthering her knowledge with additional real-life experience.

Through several internships with various companies, she has gained industry experience. She worked three summers with Barton Malow (a construction management firm) before spending the most recent summer in Minneapolis working for Hammel, Green, and Abrahamson (HGA) Architects and Engineers. Post-graduation, she hopes to find a full-time position with a structural firm that enables her to explore either new design or structural investigation.

Outside of classes, Kade participates in the Student Society of Architectural Engineers (SSAE). Her other hobbies include salsa dancing with the Ballroom Dance Club, painting, and learning to play guitar. An avid interest in sustainability led her to participate in Dr. David Riley’s Design-Build Montana course in the summer of 2009. This class took Kade to Lame Deer, MT, located on the Northern Cheyenne reservation. While there, she and a group of students and volunteers installed a grid-tied solar PV system, a solar hot water system, and completed several community outreach projects. The time she spent there and the friendships she forged provided some of her most cherished memories of her Penn State experience.
