Bryan Darrin is a fifth year Architectural Engineering student at The Pennsylvania State University with a specific focus in Structural Engineering. He will graduate in May 2011 with his Bachelor of Architectural Engineering (BAE). By passing the FE exam in the Fall of 2009, Bryan will gain EIT status upon graduation.

Bryan stays involved in the industry through student run clubs such as The Structural Engineers Association (SEA) and The Student chapter of Society of Architectural Engineers (SSAE). Holding positions in both have helped Bryan develop interpersonal communication skills that will benefit him greatly as he moves forward in life.

In 2009, Bryan and three other students founded the SSAE Mentor Program. Its function is to connect AE students through all five years creating a support network to share ideas and resources. These students are then linked to Penn State Alumni in the industry, opening many doors to the students. Still in its infancy, the Mentor Program has found much success and has helped strengthen the Architectural Engineering community here at Penn State.

Outside of school, Bryan enjoys the peace and satisfaction of the outdoors. Activities like hiking and whitewater kayaking satisfy his thrill for adventure. These outdoor experiences along with characteristics he developed becoming an Eagle Scout have helped mold him into the well rounded man he is today.
