Kevin Edstrom is currently a 5th year student in the Architectural Engineering program at The Pennsylvania State University.  He will graduate in May 2011 with a Bachelor and Master of Architectural Engineering degree, with a focus in mechanical systems.  During the summer of 2009, Kevin participated in the Sede di Roma study abroad program, studying architecture in Rome, Italy and picking up a minor in Architectural Studies.

Through several internships, Mr. Edstrom has acquired work experience in the engineering and construction fields.  During his first two internships with the Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, Kevin built a strong base of skills in project management and gained an understanding of how the building      industry functions.  In the summer of 2010, Kevin obtained a unique          internship at Westinghouse Electric Company in Pittsburgh, PA, working on the design and construction of nuclear power plants in China.  He performed interdisciplinary work with the engineering design and construction teams.  Currently, Kevin is interning for the Center for Sustainability at Penn State, where he will gain valuable knowledge in solar energy and various            sustainable technologies. 

In October of 2009, Kevin passed the FE exam and will obtain EIT status upon graduation this spring.  He looks forward to beginning his work as an engineer of mechanical systems and sustainable technologies and to obtain his license as a Professional Engineer (PE). 

Outside of academics, Kevin is a founding father of the Penn State Chapter of Phi Kappa   Sigma Fraternity, and has held the house manager position for four semesters.  He is also an active member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (ASHRAE), the Student Partner for Achieving Construction Excellence (S:PACE), and the  Mechanical     Contractors Association of America (MCAA).  Kevin also enjoys skiing, travelling, and golfing.
