Guidelines for Presentations

Presentations will be held at both midterm and final exam periods. The guidelines for the presentations are:

  • Presentation should inform the audience of what your project is about and what you have done. Your presentation does not have to (and probably should not) cover all the sections of the report. Due to the time limit, you may choose to omit some information from your presentation (such as schedule, literature review), so you can concentrate on explaining the problem and your solution.
  • Assume the audience does not know about your project. For example, even if you have the same committee as a previous presentation, do NOT assume they remember what your project about.
  • Presentation should be professional, making use of software (e.g. Powerpoint, demos)
  • 10 minute presentation for each group (unless otherwise indicated)
  • 5 minutes of question time, for questions from judges and the audience
  • Each student in the group must present
  • All students must wear SIIT uniform on the presentation day
  • Presentations will be judged on:
    1. Quality of the visual aids
    2. Quality of the talks
    3. Completeness and quality of tasks (e.g. understanding of topic and problem, appropriate plan to solve the problem)
    4. Ability to answer questions
    5. Dress and timing
  • An LCD projector will be available. It is recommended that groups use the PC available in the room (unless you need special software, in which your own laptop can be used). Groups may be penalised if they take too long to setup their presentation or have technical problems. You MUST prepare and practice your presentation beforehand.
  • All students must attend the presentations of other groups. Groups may be penalised if they leave early or arrive late.
