Malcolm Murray is a 5th year Architectural Engineering student at Penn State University focusing in lighting and electrical systems. He will graduate in May 2015 with EIT status, a Bachelor's of Architectural Engineering, and a minor in Architecture Studies. In the summer of 2015 Malcolm will begin his career as an electrical engineer/technology consultant at Arup, Chicago. Although he did not enter Penn State with an interest in engineering, once he realized what he is passionately curious about the choice was simple.
As a member of the Synthesis Electrical Team, Malcolm was responsible for daylighting, lighting design and control, power distribution, and data infrastructure of Growing Power's Prototype Vertical Farm. The integrated team approach also led Malcolm to work with the other team members to design the architecture and aesthetics of the farm.
Currently, Malcolm is the Penn State Learning (PSL) Coordinator of Mathematics, Economics, and Statistics Tutoring. While at Penn State he has studied abroad throughout China, worked as an assistant sales manager in New York, and interned as a lighting designer in San Francisco. He plays basketball in his free time
“When engineers and quantity surveyors discuss aesthetics and architects study what cranes do we are on the right road.”
