Michael W. Reilly Jr.

Michael Reilly is currently in his 5th year of study in the Architectural Engineering Program at The Pennsylvania State University. He is presently pursuing an Integrated Bachelor/Master of Architectural Engineering degree with a specialization in building heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and will graduate in May 2011 with EIT status and gain employment with an engineering firm allowing him to further expand his knowledge of his profession.

During the past 3 summers, Michael spent his time as an intern in the New York City office of Cannon Design, a nationwide, integrated architectural/engineering firm. He spent his intern years working with institutions like New York University Medical Center, Nassau Community College, and John T. Mather Memorial Hospital where he actively participated in new and renovation designs as well as the analysis of existing systems. Prior to the internships, Mr. Reilly worked as a plumbing and heating mechanic for 8 years where he gained valuable hands-on experience piping various systems such as: natural gas fired co-generators, steam/hydronic boilers, gas conversions, radiant heating systems, DWV and recirculation lines and snow-melt systems. Michael will be joining the New York City office of Cannon Design as a full-time employee after graduation.

Before enrolling in Penn State, Michael attended Arlington High School in LaGrange, NY where he participated in many extracurricular activities. He was an All-American and Scholar-Athlete on the Varsity Track and Field team; he entered in student architectural design competitions at the local Dutchess Community College and was a project manager of a team that constructed a bio-diesel fueled ATV made from oils from the school’s kitchen. Currently, Mr. Reilly is a Teaching Assistant for Penn State’s Advanced HVAC course. He is also student member of the Penn State Student Chapter of the American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and was the project manager of Penn State’s Team in the 2010 Student Design Competition, which was the top regional design.

All of these experiences have helped advance Michael’s leadership abilities as well as shape his understanding on teamwork and improve his ability to perform and excel in the engineering industry.
