Student Bio

Natasha Beck is currently in her fifth year of study in the Architectural Engineering Program at the Pennsylvania State University. In May of 2014, she will graduate with a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering focusing on structural systems. Having passed the FE Examination in October 2012, she will receive EIT status upon graduation.

This past summer, Natasha had a structural internship with Ruby+Associates, Inc. There, she gained experience in real world applications of structural analysis, load determination, and calculation submittals. In addition, she had the opportunity to interact with clients and answer project related questions. She also had the opportunity to author, maintain and adapt structural models in a variety of software. Through the AE program, she was given another opportunity to be a research assistant on the Energy Efficient Buildings Hub (EBB Hub) Research Project. She investigated 3D building visualization exploring the areas of software workflow and interoperability, created full scale interactive models, and discussed the modeling process and its challenges with the project team.

Throughout her stay at Penn State, Natasha has been an active member of Alliance Christian Fellowship (ACF). In her fourth year, she led small group discussions and in her fifth year is leading a Bible study for upperclassmen women. Outside of ACF and AE, Natasha enjoys reading, writing, frisbee, and the outdoors.
