AE 481W/482 Reflection

The AE serior thesis has been a great experience for me. It brings my level of understanding of these systems up a couple of notches all while testing my time management skills. The thesis provided me with contacts in the industry and actual experience with collaboration that occurs during the design process.

The writing heavy fall semester of 481W was a great experience for working on my technical writing skills. It was nice to have feedback on multiple papers to get a sense of the style, depth, and organization that is expected from a technical report in our field of study. The spring semester of 482 was open ended and taught me invaluable skills in time management. Overall, the program was a success and has prepared me for the next phase of my life in the business world.

CPEP & Discussion Board Reflection

The experience of designing my own CPEP website was what it took to spur me into doing something that I had wanted to learn for quite some time. The knowledge of what goes on and how websites are made is essential in our current growing web-based economy. It was good to require this experience of all of the senior thesis students.

The discussion board was a good communication device because you could see what other students were asking about and apply the responses from industry to your studies. It opened up the whole research and collaborative process to all of the students which is to everyone's advantage.


Note: While great efforts have been taken to provide accurate and complete information on the pages of CPEP, please be aware that the information contained herewith is considered a work‐in‐progress for this thesis project. Modifications and changes related to the original building designs and construction methodologies for this senior thesis project are solely the interpretation of Christopher Ankeny. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed. Differing assumptions, code references, requirements, and methodologies have been incorporated into this thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.
