Partner with Us

Penn State frequently collaborates with companies and organizations large and small that are interested in supporting architectural engineering education and research efforts.

Our industry partners help supply machinery and tools, internships, co-op opportunities, design projects, and research programs that help our faculty prepare students for the type of work they will experience after graduation. 

Our partnerships with these companies are beneficial to both parties; we assist with engineering projects, processes, and problems while our business partners provide students with the real-world experience they need to be successful, architectural engineering professionals.

The support we receive from industry partners is remarkable. From scholarships to equipment purchases to research initiatives and capstone projects, our partners help us provide the best learning environment possible for our students.

Our current industry organizations include:
