AE 481W/482 Course Reflection

The course work from AE 481W and AE 482 helped to provide us with the knowledge to complete our senior thesis project.  This project tied together all of what we have learned in the past five years in all of the different classes.  All of the breadth subjects helped to give us the knowledge to succeed outside of our depth areas.  In the construction depth, we were able to do more research in critical industry issues and help to take what we have learned in the past few years and apply them to real problems that occurred on our projects.  By having good communication skills, we were able to make contacts in the construction industry and receiving help for the depth and breadth topics would not have been possible without the help of industry professionals.  The thesis class overall was a good experience that helped to take what I have learned so far in my career and combine it with the help from industry professionals to solve problems and research alternative methods. 


CPEP & Discussion Board Reflection

Posting our ongoing work and results to our CPEP webpage was a good way to share our work with friends, family, and industry professionals who were helping us with our senior thesis project.  We were able to design the webpage however we pleased, with only having to meet certain criteria.  While having no previous webpage experience, I was able to create a functional webpage that looks as professional as any other webpage.  When the year is over, the webpage can serve as a guide for future students and other industry professionals.  The discussion board helped to provide instant communication with industry professionals to help us with a quick answer on a problem.

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 Lawrence Peter Warner Jr. 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.
