Senior Thesis:
The task of completing a year-long, intensive research project seemed a daunting challenge at the beginning of the fall semester. By slowly chipping away at all the information gathered, I realized how much I was learning about the design process. By reciting to myself: remember the fundamentals, I can approach any engineering problem with full confidence that I am capable of finding a solution. Working on 360 State Street has illustrated that engineering is really a continuous learning process. Each design is unique to the project but over time, experience lends itself to making firm decisions. Senior Thesis moreover, has helped develop several vital skills that include knowing where to look for answers as well as knowing when to ask for help.

CPEP: Creating the Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio was a unique way of displaying all the work put into completing my senior thesis. Altogether, my class has created a library of unique design decisions and solutions that can be shared among classmates, family and friends. I felt a sense of pride posting what I have learned over the past five years in Architectural Engineering. This site also helped to strengthen my abilities to communicate ideas and develop organization within a project.

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 Sabrina Duk. 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.
