Building Materials Expo

The Department of Architectural Engineering at Penn State invites students and companies to join us for our first-annual Building Materials Exposition, where manufacturers of building materials and equipment will showcase their best products to students and faculty of the AE department and the greater College of Engineering community.

As future leaders in the building industry, engineering students are eager to learn about the latest developments in new technologies and specification options coming to market through companies' materials and equipment products. This is an opportunity for students and company representatives to meet and network before our AE graduates go on to work in diverse sectors of the construction industry.

The AE department also maintains a library of building material samples, mock-ups, and models for classroom demonstrations and educational reference. We invite companies to send material and equipment samples for donation to this library, or to leave behind samples from their table at the fair for inclusion in this library.

Event Schedule:

9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.: Arrival and set-up

10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.: Networking

12:00 noon – 1:00 p.m.: Lunch (box lunch provided to company representatives)
