Darren Bromley, BASc 2004, MASc 2008

During my undergrad studies, the co-op program introduced me to my current employer, Powertech Labs. I have been involved in an assortment of failure analyses and metallurgical investigations, as well as standard and customized mechanical testing. With Powertech’s support, I returned to UBC eight months after graduation to obtain my masters degree. By studying test methods for high pressure hydrogen environment embrittlement of materials, I have since been involved in design and construction of test equipment and in-depth material evaluation test programs.

The best moment of my career was when I completed delivery of equipment I designed and built for a European client. Since the steps leading to delivery were very trying, the satisfaction of completing the task was most rewarding. I also enjoyed travelling to Europe to provide installation and training.
