Alumni Volunteer Opportunities


The Department of Architectural Engineering, Penn State Engineering Alumni Society (PSEAS) and the Penn State Alumni Society of Architectural Engineers (ASAE) sponsor numerous initiatives throughout the year and we encourage alumni to volunteer to make these events and programs successful.

Department opportunities

  • Student Mentoring: Volunteer to be paired as an alumni mentor to an undergraduate student through ASAE. 
  • Senior Thesis: Volunteer use of company projects, mentor a student as an industry consultant, and/or serve on the senior thesis jury. 
  • Classroom Engagement: Volunteer your time as a guest speaker.

College Opportunities

  • PSEAS Faculty/Staff Awards: Help PSEAS in the annual selection process to recognize outstanding teachers, advisers, researchers, and support staff in the College of Engineering.
  • Penn State Regional Rube Goldberg Machine Contest: Held in February, this annual "Olympics of Complexity" challenges students to move beyond traditional problem solving. Alumni volunteers are needed to help with judging, timekeeping, program distribution, and other tasks.


Widely acknowledged as one of the top Architectural Engineering programs in the world, the Penn State AE Department is dedicated to providing outstanding academic excellence to all of our students. The AE program is focused on preparing students and conducting research in the design, engineering, and construction of building projects.
