POCATELLO – Idaho State University’s John Mulvaney was named the Career Path Intern (CPI) for the month of March by the ISU Career Center.
Mulvaney is a senior double majoring in nuclear and mechanical engineering and has been working in the Nuclear Engineering Laboratory at Idaho State University for the past two semesters. During his time as a CPI intern, he has led projects including performing an in-depth power calibration of the nuclear reactor, a documentation organization project of over half a century of paperwork, and aiding in design and construction of a water-tight detector housing.
"Each of John's projects have required patience, hard work, and thoughtfulness all of which John has happily supplied," said Maxwell Daniels, ISU Nuclear Reactor supervisor. "In completing each of the aforementioned projects, John was able to create a new calculation methodology, save money on a comparable design, and make files easily accessible with a simple new organizational system."
Mulvaney, originally from Orlando, Florida, will be moving to Newport News, Virginia, upon graduation, where he will start work for America's largest military shipbuilding company, Huntington Ingalls.
"My CPI internship allowed me to become a licensed reactor operator, which helped me secure my position at Huntington Ingalls," John explained. "I came to ISU for the small class size, but to gain work experience through my CPI position while in school has been an added bonus."
