Final Report



The AE senior Thesis project was an unforgettable experience since it pushed me to the limits. However, I was able to become a better engineer in terms of having good stress management and strong engineering skills. The Capstone project also allows me to explore topics that are not covered in the AE curriculum. Overall, this experience made me feel more prepared for the building industry.

The CPEP website is a useful tool for online data management and storage. The data stored in CPEP will be available to access anytime, anywhere and by anyone. This is an added benefit of providing students with a professional profile webpage. Managing and updating CPEP also gives me a good hand on experience of using Adobe Dreamweaver.
