Help a Young Engineer Gain Recognition in Their Field

2015 New Face of Engineering

Education: Bachelor of Architectural Engineering in architectural engineering, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, Pa.

Alyssa, 28, has been recognized for her commitment to furthering a sustainable world through design and energy conservation projects for commercial buildings. Alyssa has assisted schools, municipalities and other organizations in securing approximately $3.5 million in grants, low interest loans, and utility rebates to help subsidize renewable technology installations such as geothermal, biomass boilers, solar photovoltaic and solar thermal heating systems. Her work has also led to over $40 million in self-funded energy saving programs across Pennsylvania’s K-12 schools.

Alyssa first became involved with ASHRAE as a student member her sophomore year at Penn State. “Between monthly chapter meetings and the winter conference, I had an early, meaningful exposure to the industry. By my senior year, I was fully immersed in ASHRAE.”

After she graduated, Alyssa continued her ASHRAE involvement and in 2012 she became the first female president of the Central Pennsylvania ASHRAE Chapter. “When I started in the profession, ASHRAE provided me with a localized network of engineers, who I relied on for questions, mentoring, and overall career development. The board members invited me to join committees, and before I knew it, I was making my way through the ASHRAE leadership chairs.”

As ASHRAE’s New Face of Engineering, Alyssa will attend the 2015 CIBSE Technical Symposium in London, UK and be featured in an ad in the ASHRAE Journal. And check out Alyssa in DiscoverE New Faces video!

 

New Face of Engineering

The New Faces of Engineering recognition program, introduced by  ASHRAE in 2003, is part of National Engineers Week—sponsored by DiscoveryE (formerly known as the National Engineers Week Foundation)—a coalition of engineering societies, major corporations and government agencies. Engineers Week, February 22-28, 2015, promotes New Faces to provide incentive to those in college and inspire even younger students to consider engineering careers.

Engineers 30 years of age or younger are the focus of the recognition program. ASHRAE members are encouraged to nominate deserving young engineers so that they might have the opportunity to earn recognition in their chosen field.

 

Criteria

Nominees/applicants must by 30 years or younger as of Dec. 31, 2014 and have a degree in engineering from a recognized U.S. college or university, or from an equivalent international educational institution. Degrees in engineering technology, science, computer science and similar disciplines do not qualify, though a degree in computer engineering is acceptable.

 

Recognition

The individual selected as ASHRAE's New Face of Engineering 2015 will receive the following recognition:

  • Featured along with the other New Faces in a USA Today print ad during National Engineers Week
  • Trip to the 2015 CIBSE Technical Symposium, held April 16-17, 2015 in London
