Senior Thesis Reflection

The capstone AE senior thesis project was an invaluable learning tool over the past year.  The project made me realize how much knowledge I actually gained over the past five years at Penn State and allowed me to apply this information to an actual building.  The thesis project taught me time management skills and demonstrated the extensive amount of time and effort that goes into designing a building.  I now feel much more familiar with the codes and the processes involved with the design of building systems.  I feel confident that the engineering design principles I have learned have properly prepared me for a career in structural engineering.

  CPEP Reflection

User 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 Jason Kukorlo. 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.”


The Senior Thesis e-Portfolio was an excellent way to document our progress throughout the year.  The website not only showed our work to professors and potential future employers but also allowed friends, family, and the general public to see the amount of time and effort put in by Penn State’s Architectural Engineering students.  The ability to create and maintain a professional website was a great skill to learn and also helped with networking and making contacts.  Overall, the Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) website we created was a great way to display our senior thesis work and remains to be a significant part of the senior thesis project.
