He aspires to work in a firm that reinforces the harmony of structure and architecture.











Apart from internships he spent a summer studying architecture and medieval structures of Italy in the study abroad program in Rome. The eccentric buttresses and decorated columns of Roman churches and cathedrals have also led him to the insight of the aesthetics of structural engineering. This study abroad program has gained him a minor in Architecture studies.

Another important class he was a part of the was the Building Information Modeling where he played the part of a structural engineer in a team of architects and engineers that designed the expansion of Intramural building at Penn State. This experience helped him gain a first-hand experience of the dialogue that goes on among the professionals in the building construction industry. Besides structures and architecture, Punit enjoys travelling, photography, cooking and playing tennis.
