Course Reflection

The 5th year AE senior thesis was a new and rewarding experience that many students may not have in college. In the fall AE 481W requires the students to gather all important information and data for a building project. The second semester AE 482 has far less structure and time management and discipline fall solely on the student. The spring semester taught many valuable lessons that are extremely applicable to a career in the construction field. AE 481W/482 is a perfect end to a 5 year program that ties all years together

CPEP Relfection

The Capstone ePortfolio was a necessary evil for the capstone thesis program. Many students did not have prior webpage design experience which was a difficult hurdle in the beginning with regular updates needed. The ePortfolio is a valuable tool that can provide insight to industry members, faculty and others interested in seeing the work done throughout the semester by the 5th year students. I had little webpage design experience but now feel that I could design a very professional webpage with little effort and in a timely manner. The CPEP sites also provide priceless archives for future AE students which are excellent resources for completing their thesis work in the future.

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 Ryan Korona. 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.
