Student Biography

Christopher (Boomer)Barron



Christopher (Boomer) Barron is currently in his 5th year of study in the Architectural Engineering Program at Penn State University.
In May 2011 he will graduate with a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering, with a focus in construction management. While at Penn State,
Christopher has been a member of The International Society of Explosive Engineering, S:PACE (Student Partnership for Achieving Construction Excellence), and THON.

Over the past summer Christopher worked as a general laborer on a commercial framing crew located in his hometown of Slippery Rock, PA.
This gave him a valuable look into the side of construction that few students actually see. It also helped him develop a greater sense of how to work
with a large group of strangers to accomplish a common goal. Christopher plans on taking the FE exam in the spring, in order to obtain EIT status
upon graduation in May. Christopher’s goals towards the future are to start a successful career in the construction industry and travel the world.

 Outside of Academics, Christopher enjoys sports, hunting, fishing, cooking, weightlifting, and riding his motorcycle. He also wants to start
experimenting with brewing his own beer, and hopes to one day be able to open his own microbrewery.
