Thesis Reflection

The Penn State AE Senior Thesis program succeeds in providing students with skills, experience, and knowledge that is necessary for post-graduation success. This project taught me valuable lessons regarding project management and communication that are difficult to learn in a lecture environment.  It also required application of knowledge learned throughout the previous four years of study; especially for the topics that were not a part of my chosen option.  The variety of focuses improved my understanding of how building systems work together when built, and affect each other during design.  Overall, Thesis was a valuable learning experience enhanced by caring advisors and a detailed set of project guidelines.
