Final Reflection


ABET Assessment


Course Reflection

Overall, the fifth year senior thesis course was a great experience. I found myself challenged with the individual work load, but in a good way. Being able to choose what I was going to do on my own schedule and my own analysis for senior thesis was a great way for me to leave my comfort zone. The technical skills that I acquired throughout my time at Penn State were very helpful throughout this process. This experience has opened my eyes and taught me a lot about the construction industry, I look forward to apply these skills in the professional world.


CPEP Reflection

The Capstone E-Portfolio was very challenging and frustrating. Having never completed a webpage I found setting up the webpage the most difficult. The CPEP site is a great reference to have regarding all that I have accomplished this year.
