AEI Student Competition | 350 Mission Street | San Francisco, California
Robert Livorio | Lighting/Electrical

Robert Livorio is a 5th year student majoring in Architectural Engineering with a focus on lighting and electrical design. He anticipates graduating from Penn State and the Schreyer Honors College in May 2014 with an integrated Master and Bachelor of Architectural Engineering degree and a minor in Architectural Studies. Having passed the Fundamentals of Engineering exam in April 2012, he will be an Engineer in Training (EIT) upon graduation.

Robert’s professional experience includes internships with two different Architecture and Engineering firms. His first internship was in Pittsburgh with Astorino during the summer of 2012. He spent most of the summer with the electrical engineering department, focusing primarily on lighting design. During the summer of 2013 he completed an internship with HGA Architects and Engineers in Milwaukee, focusing on electrical design. He benefitted from receiving exposure to the lighting and electrical sides of design, both of which interest him, and working in full-service AE firms allowed for personal collaboration with architects and other engineering disciplines. Aside from professional internships, Robert has participated in Penn State’s highly regarded Interdisciplinary Collaborative BIM Studio and studied abroad in Italy through Penn State AE's "Sede di Roma" program.

Outside of the classroom, Robert has been involved in a number of extracurricular activities. He is a member of several student organizations related to architectural engineering (SSAE, IES) and has enjoyed doing outreach work with high school students through Project CANDLE. He has been highly involved in Penn State’s Dance Marathon through multiple organizations and has held leadership positions within them. Robert also enjoys playing intramural sports, staying active, and attending Penn State athletic events.

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.
