AE 481W/482 Course Reflection:

I believe that the AE senior thesis project is crucial for graduating students to experience. The work we performed was very similar to work we would be expected to perform on a daily basis in our careers. We have learned how to design many different types of floor systems and multiple types of materials. Even in our respective classes for each material we never learned how to make it all fit together. This class by far taught me the most.

CPEP Reflection:

The CPEP sites were both helpful and hurtful. They are helpful because professors and professionals can access your work much easier. The only issue is how difficult is it to get permission to post much of the material. Many students this semester had issues with permission. Personally, I think the site is an addition to the project. Some professors did not even want paper copies of the work. This saved me time and money. Thank you, to the professors who made my life a little easier these last two semesters.
