Course Reflection

The AE Senior Thesis experience has been a learning experience testing my time management, technical skills, creativity and industry communication.  When working on this project I was able to complete my work at my own pace and during time that suited my schedule.  However, it was nice that the faculty gave milestones to which certain work must be completed in order to keep the project on track for completion.  Throughout this project I was able to utilize my technical skills that I have acquired over my collegiate career at Penn State.  The Senior Thesis experience allowed me to research topics that were of interest to me and would like to gain more knowledge of for my future in the construction industry.  Finally, this project allowed me to interact with many industry members to gain ideas and knowledge of areas of research.  This was a very valuable experience to help introduce me to what I will be performing in my professional career.


CPEP Reflection

The CPEP was a perfect way of sharing my ongoing work with my professors, peers, and family members.  This is a good way of submitting work instead of printing out numerous copies of my work throughout the semester.  This exercise was also a great learning experience testing my creativity and website making skills.
