. reflection .

Senior Thesis was a year-long process that exposed us to real-life lighting and electrical problems (however, we did not get paid for this work like we would upon graduation, in real-life). It was a very valuable experience becuase I covered the entire design process with the exepction of construction administration, and took us step by step to its completion. The following survey reflects on what was learned this year in AE 481W/482(Senior Thesis) in reference to ABET outcomes:

ABET Outcomes for AE 481W/482
Outcome not able to be assessed (Score of 0)
Level of ability demonstrated but below acceptable  (Score of 1)
Minimum acceptable level of ability demonstrated (Score of 2)
More than minimum level of ability demonstrated (Score of 3)
a. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering      
b. An ability to analyze and interpret data      
c. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs      
e. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems      
f. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility      
g. An ability to communicate effectively      
h. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context      
i. An ability to engage in life-long learning      
j. A knowledge of contemporary issues      
k. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice      
o. Engineering design capabilities in at least two (2) of the (3) basic curriculum areas of architectural engineering, and that design has been integrated across the breadth of the program      
p. Communication and interaction with other design professionals in the execution of building projects

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 Angelica Santana. 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.
