The Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) is a web-based project and information center. It contains material produced from a year-long Senior Thesis class. Its purpose, in addition to providing central storage of individual assignments, is to foster communication and collaboration between student, faculty consultant, course instructors, and industry consultants. This website is dedicated to the resarch and analysis conducted via guidelines proveded by the Department of Architectural Engineering.
