ARE 7902 - Architectural Engineering Graduate Capstone II

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits

Course Description
This is the second of a two-course sequence that comprises an independent capstone project for the Master of Science in Architectural Engineering degree program. The student will complete a project that presents a comprehensive solution to an advanced architectural engineering problem. The project may be based on the student’s industrial experience, consist of experimental research, or consist of a theoretical, analytical, or numerical solution.

The student will execute data collection, design strategies and/or technical analyses as laid out in ARE 7901 to complete the project. The student will compile and document the results in a formal capstone report, typically using the IMRAD (Introduction-Methods-Results-Analysis-Discussion) format.

Satisfactory progress and completion of ARE 7902 is to be determined by an academic committee typically composed of the faculty advisor and two faculty members. (prereq: graduate program director consent, ARE 7901 , and CAE 7810 )

Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Complete an independent, advanced architectural engineering project
  • Produce the results of the project in a written capstone report that clearly conveys all technical information involved in the execution of the project and properly cites all scholarly references
  • Communicate the results of the project clearly to a technical audience as part of the project oral defense

Prerequisites by Topic
  • Knowledge in the student’s specialty area

Course Topics
  • Determined by student and faculty advisor. Students are expected to meet, at a minimum, once weekly with the faculty advisor to consult on the progress of the project.
