Scott Molongoski:

Scott Molongoski is a fifth year Architectural Engineering student at Penn State, pursuing an Integrated Bachelor/Master’s degree with an emphasis on structural engineering. Upon graduation in May, 2013 Scott will have EIT status and plans on beginning a career in either structural design or structural forensics. Scott is also involved in the Penn State chapter of the Structural Engineers Association.

In the summer of 2011 Scott participated in the department’s study abroad program in Rome, Italy. The program included an analysis of ancient, medieval, and modern Roman architecture, as well as an architectural studio. In the summer of 2012 Scott participated in an internship with the Penn State Facilities Engineering Institute. Through this internship Scott visited a number of active PennDOT maintenance facilities and helped conduct building assessments to determine the structural health of the facility.

Outside of academic and professional life Scott is an avid hiker. In the summer of 2011, Scott summited Mt. Marcy in New York, completing a 16 year long mission to become an Adirondack 46er, which involves climbing 46 mountains over 4000 feet in height. He also enjoys skiing, kayaking, and traveling. On campus, Scott has been a committee member for the past two years for the Penn State PanHellenic Dance Marathon, affectionately known as THON. Through THON Scott has helped to raise money for the victims of pediatric cancer. This year he hopes to independently dance for THON.
