Final Report


The Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) is a web-based project and information center. It contains material produced for a year-long Senior Thesis class. Its purpose, in addition to providing central storage of individual assignments, is to foster communication and collaboration between student, faculty consultant, course instructors, and industry consultants. This website is dedicated to the research and analysis conducted via guidlines provided by the Department of Architectural Engineering. For an explanation of this capstone design course and its requirements click here.

Senior Thesis Reflection

The Pennsylvania State University’s Architectural Engineering Senior Thesis Capstone project has been a demanding yet highly rewarding endeavor featuring the culmination of knowledge I have gained throughout the past five years of my education.  This project provides students a great example of the type of work that will be seen in the real world.  I feel as though my participation in the AE Senior Thesis Capstone project has better prepared me for a professional career in architectural engineering.

CPEP Reflection

Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) has been an extremely useful tool to organize, display, and verify various assignments over the past two semesters pertaining to the AE Senior Thesis Capstone project.  This website provides a portal through which my peers, family, friends, professionals, and potential employers may view my hard work over the past year.

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 methods for this senior project are solely the interpretation of Michael Kostick. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed. Differring assumptions, code references, requirements, and methodologies have been incorporated into this thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.
