Personal Portfolio of Architectural Engineering
AE 210


The intent of this assignment is to have you gather your work for the term and comment on it. Since most of your work has been created on web pages it will be a web page that gathers that work, comments on it and extends your understanding of what you can expect of both your Education and your professional life in Architectural Engineering.

The Assignment

You will create a web page with links to all your previous work for the term. On it you will comment both on the specific projects and also on your understanding of the Architectural Engineering Profession at Drexel and in the workplace.
