AE 481W and AE 882 Course Reflection

Senior thesis is a very unique and challenging experience. The work performed in the fall (AE 481W) was beneficial, learning how to analyze construction documents and gather information pertaining to the building’s design and techniques being used for construction. The spring semester (AE 882) was far more challenging and useful for our future careers. The unstructured nature of the course required us to use personal control and time management skills. The spring semester offered me the opportunity to make many contacts within the construction industry and practice my communication skills.  This is extremely applicable to the career that lies ahead. Not only will I be required to manage myself but I will potentially be in charge of many others, all working together to achieve one common goal.  Overall, thesis is a great way to prepare one’s self for the future.

CPEP Reflection

This was my first experience with maintaining a website and I did sometimes struggle with the process. However, I found it very valuable and have learned many new things through development and maintenance of this website. This may prove to be valuable experience for the future. I think the CPEP is a great way for students to share their work with friends, family, and future employers.


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. For an explanation of this capstone design course and its requirements click here.

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 Kristopher Brice. 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.
