Course Reflection

The Senior Thesis Capstone Project was a culmination of the five years Architectural Engineering studies at Penn State. The fall semester allowed students to thoroughly analyze their projects and gain an understainding of the building and its systems through the writing of three technical reports. Through these rechnical reports it was tasked upon the students to propose four analysis areas to study in depth that could potentiall benfit the project. The spring semester was when the students conducted research with the help of various industry memebers, Penn State faculty, and other advisors. The resuls of these anlyses were detailed in a final written report and through a final presentation. This Capstone Project proved to be the most challenging academic courses but at the same time was beneficial to my develpment as a future Architectural Engineer.

CPEP Reflection

The Capstone E-Portfoloio is used to showcase the work that is completed during the course of the Senior Thesis Capstone Project. It makes sharing the work done during the course of the semester very easy and now after the course is complete it can serve as a reference for future students and any other interested parties
