AE 481W/482

All in all, the AE senior thesis project provide to be a challenging, yet rewarding experience. I have learned a lot about the complexity and the challenges of applying the lighting theorires, that I have spent the last five years learning here at Penn State, to a real world project. The projects demanding fast work pace also helped me develope my organizational skills. Creating reasonable work schedules and making sure to meet project deadlines has given me a taste of what the I expect as I enter the work force. After finishing the AE senior thesis project I have a hightened awareness for what I am capablable of and I look forwad to applying these skills as a Lighting Designer.


The Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) was a very usefule tool to help myslef stay organized as I worked through the year.The CPEP website was a protal to my project and displayed all of my progress as the year went on.
