Student Biography



Tyler Strange is currently in his 5th year at Penn State University studying Architectural Engineering.  Tyler will be graduating in May 2011 with a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering degree with an emphasis in the structural option.  In addition, Tyler will have earned a minor in Architectural Studies.    After graduating, Tyler will gain EIT status and hopes to put his skills to work as a structural engineer and earn his license as a Professional Engineer (PE).

Tyler spent his last summer as an intern with Leonard S. Fiore, Inc.  He gained valuable experience in the construction industry while working in the office collecting and organizing submittals for LEED status as well as closeout items.

In the summer of 2009, Tyler was a participant in Sede di Roma, the Penn State Architectural Engineering study abroad program.  This seven week, twelve credit program included field-based instruction about topics such as ancient structural design and ancient and modern architecture.  He also developed his drawing and hand drafting skills through the study abroad program.

In addition to school, Tyler has worked at North Dining Commons for the last three years and was promoted to Student Manager after his first year.  As part of his job, he currently oversees seven to fifteen students.  In addition to managerial and leadership skills, Tyler’s experience as a Student Manager taught him to balance academics and other serious commitments.

Outside of school and work Tyler enjoys cooking and reading. He also like to travel recreationally.
