Penn State Behrend’s class of 2016 is ready to make its mark on the world! We’re proud of our students and the things they’ve accomplished and learned while here at Behrend. Over the next couple months, we’ll be introducing you to a few of our remarkable seniors who have overcome challenges, pioneered new technology, participated in important research projects, and left an impression at Penn State Behrend.
Today, we’d like you to meet Trey Neveux
Major: Mechanical Engineering
Hometown: Butler, Pennsylvania
On choosing to major in Mechanical Engineering: I’ve always enjoyed science and creating things. Mesh those two things together and you’ll find engineering at the intersection. I chose mechanical engineering to engage my widespread interest in physical systems that are easy to visualize, such as clutches, gearboxes, brakes, etc.
Proudest accomplishment at Behrend: I was part of the student team which created the disc golf course on campus. It really highlights the college’s beautiful grounds and it’s the only disc golf course in the Erie area. Learn more about the disc golf course here and here.

Campus involvement: I’ve been involved in Residence Life, the Lion Entertainment Board, Disc Golf Club, the SGA’s Supreme Court, and Tau Beta Pi, and I sat on both the Information Technology Fee and Student Activity Fee Allocation committees.
On flying, scuba diving, and woodworking: I’m never bored because I have a wide variety of hobbies. After graduation, I really want to explore some hobbies that just weren’t feasible in college, like flying, scuba diving, and woodworking.
Advice for current students: Your time at Behrend is finite, and the rate at which that time disappears is faster than you can imagine. Take advantage of all the opportunities that Penn State Behrend offers you!
Trey has been accepted into the Ph.D. graduate program in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan.
