Daniel MacRitchie is in his fifth and final year of the Architectural Engineering program at Penn State. In May, 2013 he will graduate with an integrated bachelor/master degree in architectural engineering with a focus in lighting and electrical design.

Daniel has interned at Lutron Electronics, in Coopersburg, PA, and Cannon Design, in Boston, MA, the past two summers.  At Lutron, he was part of the specification design services team where he gained valuable knowledge about lighting control systems by drafting single line diagrams of Lutron’s lighting control equipment for customers.  Daniel worked as an electrical engineering intern at Cannon Design where he gained experience using Revit, AutoCAD, COMcheck and AGI32 to draft plans, calculate illuminance levels, calculate lighting power densities and create panelboard schedules.  After passing the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam last October, Daniel will receive Engineer in Training status upon graduation.

Daniel is involved with many clubs on campus including the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, the Student Society of Architectural Engineers and he is the treasurer of the Illuminating Engineering Society.  He has been involved with Penn State’s Dance marathon, THON, through the National Society of Collegiate Scholars for the past two years.

Note: While great efforts have been taken to provide accurate and complete information on the pages of CPEP, please be aware that the information contained herewith is considered a work-in-progress for this thesis project. Modifications and changes related to the original building designs and construction methodologies for this senior thesis project are solely the interpretation of Dan MacRitchie. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed.
