Senior Thesis Reflection
The thesis capstone course allows every student to develop a multi-disciplinary back ground in different aspects of Architectural Engineering.  Mainly, this course provides students with great skills to further improve their education to prepare for the real world after college. By first implementing a delivery based system during the fall, we were able to fulfill the requirements by progressive deliverables due throughout the semester. However, during the spring semester we were challenged to be more dependent on our own with a concise plan to reach our goal. Our goal was to provide a quality analysis on the design aspects of our thesis projects, which would test our ability to function as an engineer.
Over the course of the years, there are many courses that individually prepare each student with the necessary techniques to be a successful Architectural Engineer. This thesis course causes us to encompass all of our years of hard work into one course. Additionally, by researching and speaking with industry professionals, it allows students to become more aware of the industry and the direction it is heading.  The course offers the last fundamental steps into the ever evolving building industry before graduation.

CPEP Reflection
The CPEP website is an exceptional way to demonstrate the final product of your research. Furthermore, the CPEP site allows students to continually update their current progress and provides insight on the requirements for later years. This site not only benefits us, but it helps the younger engineers to see the detailed working of past 5th year students.
