AE 481W/482 Course Reflection

Both of these classes where very good to my learning and overall understanding of the construction industry.  The first half of the year it was good for learning how to understand and analyze a building.  Most of all though the first half of the year was most beneficial in helping my understand some of the challenges and problems that are faced in the construction industry today.  The second half of the year was very challenging and help show myself of what I am able to accomplish own my own.  These two courses where very awarding in preparing myself for the challenges I face ahead in the construction industry.


 CPEP & Discussion Board Reflection

I feel that my CPEP site for Senior Thesis was very crucial to my overall Senior Thesis.  With the growing tread of computer based technology in the industry today, I feel that it is important that technology is very important to my overall success.  The CPEP site is also a reminder to me for in the future of all of the hard work that I put into not just this Senior Thesis but for my five years of education at Penn State University.
