Thesis Reflection



AE 481/897G Reflection


The AE Senior Thesis was a very educational and enjoyable experience. The work that was preformed involved all the knowledge gained in my Penn State coursework. The process was very challenging at times, but I have gained a lot knowlege and professional skills from this experince. This past year allowed me to take the academic theory learned in classes and apply it to real pratical problems. The AE Senior Thesis has taught me mutilpe skills that will be needed in the industry. Overall, working through problems, challenges and time management helped further my progress in becoming an engineer.


CPEP Reflection

The CPEP program provided a foundation for organization and progess for my senior thesis. By requiring the use of a capstone website, I was able to improve my time mangement and organization over this year long process. The website allowed for easy progress communication between students and fauclty. I would recommend this to remain as a requirment to help future students in the program.
