UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Alec Broniszewski has been named the student marshal for the architectural engineering baccalaureate degree program at Penn State’s College of Engineering spring commencement ceremony on May 5. He will receive an integrated bachelor and master of architectural engineering.

Broniszewski has chosen Linda Hanagan, associate professor of architectural engineering, as his faculty escort.

College of Engineering student marshals are selected for their outstanding academic achievement and contributions to engineering student life.

Broniszewski is the son of Jeffrey and Jennifer Broniszewski of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania. He is a 2012 graduate of Cornell High School.

While at Penn State, Broniszewski was a Schreyer Honors Scholar, was named to the College of Engineering Dean’s List every semester and was the recipient of the Department of Architectural Engineering’s Barton Malow Fellowship and the PJ Dick and Trumbull Scholarship. He received the department’s Outstanding Performance in Structures, the top award presented to fourth-year structural students. Broniszewski was also a member of Tau Beta Pi, the national engineering honor society, and the Phi Kappa Phi honor society.

Broniszewski was actively involved with the architectural engineering department, serving as a member of the Structural Engineers Association (SEA), as SEA's vice president from 2016-17 and as a member of the department’s 2017 Architectural Engineering Institute Student Design Competition team.

He also served as a member of the Penn State Club Floor Hockey, intramural flag football and volleyball teams and as a THON Merchandise Committee member in 2015-16. Broniszewski received the fall 2015 Leonard Center Speaking Contest People’s Choice Award.

In addition to his academic successes and extracurricular activities, Broniszewski completed two internships during his undergraduate career. As an engineering design teaching intern with the School of Engineering Design, Technology, and Professional Programs at Penn State, he assisted students with AutoCAD and hand drafting, hosted lab hour sessions and led class sessions. As a structural intern with Atlantic Engineering Services, Broniszewski assisted in small-scale designs of large-scale projects and completed computer modeling of structures.

Following commencement, Broniszewski will join Atlantic Engineering Services as a structural designer.
