Senior Thesis e-Studio

The AE senior thesis project is an assignment that is extremely challenging both in terms of the topics covered and the time management skills necessary to complete it.  Completing this project has allowed me to improve my time management skills as well as increase my breadth of knowledge in the field of architectural engineering.  I was able to create schedules to help me keep up with the pace of work that was necessary to complete the project.  This will help me as I graduate and move into my professional career as I will be able to prioritize my work and finish projects in a timely manner.

The archive of old CPEP pages was very beneficial throughout the year when looking for guides on how to lay out presentations, reports and for clarifications on how final material should be presented.  Not only did the CPEP allow me to see the work that past students have done, but allows me to post my work for others in the industry to see.  Designing a website also helped me improve my ability to lay out technical documents.
