AE 481W/482 Reflection

What I learned over the past two semesters had well prepared me to start my first job. These courses also had helped gain the knowledge I need to be able to analyze thermal storage system, and now I am confident to use my knowledge to apply this system design at work. If I have more time, there is one thing I wish to do, which is analyzing more alternative systems design. I also like that fact it was my own project and since I had the freedom to schedule my own time, I was able to complete my assignments and reports earlier than the due date.

CPEP & Discussion Board Reflection

I am glad that I get a chance to create my CPEP webpage. This is something that I want to do beside schoolwork. It takes time and effort to create an organized webpage as well as creativity. This is a good way to share with my family and friends what Ive learned and been doing for my senior thesis project.

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

D An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

E An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

F An ability to communicate effectively

G The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context

H An ability to engage in life-long learning

I A knowledge of contemporary issues

J An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

K 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

L 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 Devon Lam. 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.
