This website has been developed to showcase the accumlated work for the analysis of the New York Police Academy. This analysis was performed as part of a captstone senior thesis project for The Pennsylvania State University's Architectural Engineering Department. The Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) serves as a great way to consolidate and publish the work and research perfromed over the last year.

Specifically, I felt that AE 481W/482 (PSU Class Designation) was extremely benefically from an educational standpoint. Architectural Engineering is a field of engineering that demands a broad knowledge of several engineering disciplines. Many classes at Penn State are indivdualy focused on a specific discipline, however AE 481W/482 forces you to integrated five years worth of engineering education into one project. I felt the accumulation of all my education was more prevalently used in AE 481W/AE 482 than any other class. As I begin my journey into the professional realm of engineering it will be important to utlize the comprehensive background that the Penn State Architectural Engineering department has provided me with.
