AE 481W/482 Course Reflection

The AE Senior Thesis Project has been a very positive academic and professional experience. The knowledge needed to complete the depth and breadth studies required me to draw from not only my course work from the previous four years but also from my three summer internships. This exercise in utilizing the wealth of knowledge that I have gained throughout the years is indicative of the work which will be expected of me upon graduation.

CPEP Reflection

The CPEP webpage was very useful in tracking the progress of the activities involved in the completion of my Senior Thesis Project. It also allowed my friends, family, and co-workers to monitor the progress that I was making and offer any suggestions they may have. CPEP adds another layer of versatility to the AE Thesis program and shows how multi-dimensional the major is.
