Courtney Millett is a fifth year Penn State Architectural Engineering student focusing on mechanical systems in buildings. Courtney will graduate in May 2015 with an Integrated Bachelor/Master of Architectural Engineering degree and a minor in Architectural Studies. In October of 2013, she passed the FE Exam and will receive E.I.T. status upon graduation.

After her sophomore year, Courtney interned with Balfour Beatty Construction in their Integrated Projects Department, spending her time collaborating with project teams on multiple projects and gaining experience in estimating.The following summer she studied abroad in Rome, Italy at The Pantheon Institute, studying ancient Roman architecture and ancient and medieval structures. This past summer, Courtney gained experience in HVAC design at an internship with Bard, Rao + Athanas Consulting Engineers. Specifically, she collaborated with a team of engineers in designing and coordinating ductwork, piping, and equipment in hospitals. In the future, Courtney looks forward to starting her career as an HVAC engineer and obtaining her Professional Engineer (PE) license.

Courtney is currently the Treasurer/Secretary of the Penn State Student Chapter of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineering (ASHRAE), and formerly the Administrative Vice President of the Penn State Chapter of the Architectural Engineering Institute, Student Society of Architectural Engineering (SSAE). Additionally, she has volunteered in Honduras and Panama with Global Architecture Brigades and Global Public Health Brigades. Both work towards sustainable development in underdeveloped communities by implementing programs that improve health, safety, and financial stability within the community. In her free time, Courtney enjoys reading, playing soccer, and skiing/snowboarding.
