AEI Student Competition | 350 Mission Street | San Francisco, California
Kristin Sliwinski | Structural

Kristin Sliwinski is a 5th year Architectural Engineering student in the integrated Bachelor and Master of Architectural Engineering program at The Pennsylvania State University. Upon graduation in May 2014, Kristin will receive her degrees with a structural specialization. She will also earn Engineer in Training status.

Throughout her years of schooling, Kristin has been involved with several different organizations. She is a mentor member for the Student Society of Architectural Engineers (SSAE), a member of Structural Engineers of America (SEA), and the SSAE THON chair for the 2013 THON year, a year long fundraising effort for pediatric cancer. She was selected as a dancer for THON 2012, one out of 708 dancers chosen. She currently works as a grader for a structural engineering course.

Kristin has a deep passion for structural design and historical analysis. She has worked in the Architectural Engineering research labs with a structural testing rig, and a mechanical project. Additionally, she has worked for Penn State Facilities Engineering Institute as an intern on a redesign project.

She enjoys reading, cooking and baking, crafting, and hiking. She has traveled to many places, and looks forward to expanding her horizons.

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 AEVITAS. 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.
