Student Biography


Patrick Morgan is currently a 5th year student studying lighting and electrical aspects of architectural engineering at the Pennsylvania State University. In May of 2011, he plans to graduate with both his Bachelor of Architectural Engineering and Master of Architectural Engineering. Upon graduation, Patrick will assume a full time position with James Posey Associates as an Electrical Engineer.

Patrick has been complementing his in-class instruction since the summer of 2007. For the 2007 and 2008 summer, Patrick was an intern at TAO Design in Moorestown, New Jersey. This small architectural design firm offered him experience and knowledge of both the building industry and the architect perspective.

Beginning in the spring of 2008, Patrick became a member of the 2009 Solar Decathlon competition. He served as both a member of the lighting design team and the electrical/photovoltaic design team. By the competition in October of 2009, Patrick played a lead role on the lighting design team.

In the summer of 2010, Patrick spent the summer as an intern for James Posey Associates in Baltimore, Maryland. He worked on various projects ranging from university facilities to the museums and galleries in Washington, D.C. This internship provided a wealth of practical application in both lighting and electrical design.

Patrick is also a standing student member of IES and IALD. He continues an active role in Tau Beta Pi after serving as president for the PA Beta Chapter last year. After passing the FE exam in the fall of 2009, Patrick will be considered an EIT upon graduation. He also will be pursuing LEED AP and Lighting Consultant certification.
