Senior Thesis Reflection

Senior thesis presented many challenges and learning experiences. My favorite part of this course was the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to a real world project and explore real world engineering concerns instead of theoretical problems. I also valued the opportunity to explore particular building systems in depth and their impact on other building systems. One of the most important skills I learned and improved upon was time management and working efficiently. Finally, the structure of Senior Thesis operated much more closely to professional practice than typical classwork allowed me to practice operating in that type of environment and prepare me for my future.

CPEP Reflection

The online portfolio has been beneficial for submitting and presenting my work throughout this year on my thesis project. It has also been helpful for sharing information with my advisor, family, friends and industry professionals. Previously, I had minimal experience in web design and the creation and maintanence of this CPEP site provided an advantageous insight into web design.

Note: While great efforts have been taken to provide accurate and complete information on the pages of CPEP, please be aware that the information contained herewith is considered a work-in progress for this thesis project. Modifications and changes related to the original building designs and construction methodologies for this senior thesis project are solely the interpretation of Natasha Beck. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed. Differing assumptions, code references, requirements, and methodologies have been incorporated into this thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.
