Notes for FA Presentation:

i.     The presentation is a compulsory component of the FYP; the main evaluator and moderator will not allocate any mark for a project unless there had been a formal presentation. 

ii.     Project presentations are held in a seminar style and a number of parallel sessions would be held. As far as possible, projects in similar areas would be grouped. Each presentation will be scheduled for around 40 minutes, including Q&A. Please refer to the Project Administration System for the presentation schedule of your project (when available, will be informed via email).

iii.    Once a seminar presentation date for a project has been fixed, any request for changes in the schedule will not be considered, as it would affect all other schedules. The only exception is when the request is due to medical reasons.

iv.    The seminar is opened to all staff and students. Academic staff may invite industry partners to attend. For external projects, staff of the external organisation may also attend the presentations.


       Refer to Semester 2, AY2016/2017 CG4001 FYP Final Presentation Schedule (Revised; as of 13 April 2017)

v.     The presenter should be prepared to answer questions related to the project from the main evaluator, moderator and visitors. Each parallel session is about 3 hours. Presenter must be present at all times during the assigned time-slot.

 

For the final assessment, the supervisor shall evaluate only the student’s report. He/She may attend the presentation but is not to speak for the student or the project, as it is the student who will be under scrutiny.

The moderator shall be present throughout (the respective session) as he/she would moderate across all projects in the particular session. His/Her evaluation would be mainly based on the presentation and how the student answers to questions fielded.
