Lighting / Electrical Option

Keith McMullen is currently in his 5th year of study in the Architectural Engineering Program at the Pennsylvania State University. In May 2013, he will graduate with his Bachelors of Architectural Engineering with a focus in the Lighting/Electrical discipline. Keith is a member of the Student Society of Architectural Engineering (SSAE), and the student chapter of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES).

Over the past summers and school year, Keith has held several internships which have provided him with valuable experience. He first held a year long position at the Penn State – Office of Physical Plant as an Energy Engineering intern working to find energy saving lighting systems upgrades for campus applications.  During this past summer, Keith was in Boston, Massachusetts working as an Electrical Design intern at Bard, Rao, + Athanas Consulting Engineers.  This gave Keith a great understanding of complex electrical design for healthcare/laboratory  facilities and collaborative BIM projects. Working on both sides of the industry from an owners standpoint as well as a designer has helped make Keith a very well rounded individual.

Keith passed the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam in Fall 2011 and will gain Engineer-in-Training (E.I.T) status upon graduation in May 2013. One of his first goals upon graduation is to join a company that will help him pursue his Professional Engineering (PE) license. Keith hopes to obtain a career as a lighting/electrical engineer in a challenging environment where he can further his knowledge of the AE industry.

In his spare time, Keith enjoys snowboarding, weight lifting, and tinkering with old cars.

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‐inprogress 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 the UNITUS design team. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed. Differing assumptions, code references, requirements, and methodologies have been incorporated into this thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.

The Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) is a web‐based project and information center. It contains material produced for a year‐long Senior Thesis class. Its purpose, in addition to providing central storage of individual assignments, is to foster communication and collaboration between student, faculty consultant, course instructors, and industry consultants. This website is dedicated to the research and analysis conducted via guidelines provided by the Department of Architectural Engineering.
