Here are a few guidelines for engineering students on the brink of submitting their project:
- Avoid faking of projects and deceptive acts.
- Conduct themselves honourably, responsibly, ethically, and lawfully so as to enhance the honour, reputation, and usefulness of the profession.
- Engineering students shall exercise highest standards of honesty and integrity.
a. Engineers shall acknowledge the source of their work. b. Plagiarism or any other act of copying from other sources without acknowledgement should be avoided. c. Getting your project work done by somebody else is a highly condemnable act. d. Do not resort to any unfair means or malpractice for completing your project.
Final oral presentation of your project Most engineering students have fewer opportunities to practise their presentation skills than friends studying arts and humanities subjects. However, at the end of your project you may be asked to give a presentation, so here are some top tips. The main tip is to find out as much as you can beforehand so that you can prepare well. You'll need to know:
- The duration of the presentation � does this include time for questions?
- What facilities will be available, for example: presentation software, projector, flip chart or nothing?
For engineering candidates, the presentation usually focuses on a technical project that they have done.A Structure is very important. Your presentation needs to have a beginning, a middle and an end. The introduction is your first opportunity to create a good impression and capture the attention of your examiner.
Set the scene by introducing your topic and letting your examiner know what you will cover and why. For example, if you are talking about your project, give a brief overview of what the project was about, why it is important and the main objectives you needed to achieve.
Once you complete your project you have all you need to get your engineering graduate career off to a flying start and get ready for an exciting career and employment opportunity.Before presenting your project, check for the availability of facilities like A presentation software, projector, flip chart and more
