Personal Bio

Jessel Elliott is in his fifth and final year at Pennsylvania State University. He will graduate in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering with a focus on structural engineering. He will also be an Engineer in Training upon graduation since passing the FE in the spring of 2011.

While at Penn State, he has been mainly involved with the, student chapter of EERI (Earthquake Engineering Research Institute) as the club's treasurer, and the Structural Engineering Association (SEA). He is also a member of the American Institute for Steel Construction (AISC). As a part of EERI-PSU, Jessel was also as a member of the design team which participated in an undergraduate seismic design competition in San Diego this past February. While there, he not only learned about structural design for earthquakes but also learned that this might be something he would want to do later on life.

This past summer, Jessel worked with the Sheetz company as an intern in their store design department. Even though it was not a structural internship, he still learned a lot about what goes into getting architectural drawings out to the contractors and also a great deal of CADD as well.

Outside of classes, Jessel enjoys a variety of different things including intramural sports, drawing, and baseball. He is an avid Phillies fan and contributes most of his interest in structural engineering to the many ballparks he has visited giving him hope to design a ballpark one day in the future.
