It is my opinion that I did benefit from The Architectural Engineering Senior Thesis Project, especially moving forward into the future. One of the most important things I will take away from this design is the importance of following through on an idea from beginning to end, closing holes and problem solving at all times. It also prepared me for conversations and logistics of explaining and enforcing my designs to those who aren’t as familiar with the project. Though at times, especially in the first semester, thesis was a bit tedious and I had to remind myself to not simply just go through the motions, overall I believe thesis was a beneficial and rewarding experience of integration and engineering design.

CPEP Evaluation
I really enjoyed learning how to design a website, both graphically and digitally. I have never really designed a website before and it allowed me to get my feet wet in HTML coding as well as graphic design. At first, during the many headaches early on in the website design, I wished I took the easy way out and designed a website using an already pre-laid out code or website-making site, I’m glad in the end that I did not. Starting the site from scratch was definitely an experience that I am really happy with now, looking back.

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 Maggie Golden. 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.
