With senior thesis giving us the opportunity to analyze and redesign the structure of an existing building and other related options, there are various benefits. Primarily, it was helpful to get a first-hand experience simliar to an industrial job that could not be replicated in a classroom. This also gave a chance to explore topics to a deeper level that were touched in classes. This helped model a real work experience, where only deadlines are given, and not weekly assignments as seen in classes. Overall, this was a beneficial experience that has long-term benefits.
The use of an online compilation of our progress, reports, and other aspects of our senior thesis was a helpful and convenient method of submitting assignments to thesis advisors. Without previous experience in computer programming or website maintenance, this was a helpful learning experience that, once understood, was fairly easy to maintain and work with.
