Consider your presentation to the class as a presentation of the project to a group of peers who are to evaluate the project before making a recommendation to higher-level management. The presentation could be given to management if certain technical sections were removed. Those technical sections will be necessary for your peers to evaluate your system as a solution to the problem(s) that you have studied.
The presentation should be a team effort--in design, preparation, and delivery. Thorough preparation is necessary for the presentation to be professional. Pay close attention should to the format, organization, and style of the presentation. Your attire should be appropriate for business occasions (and conservative, by university standards).
You should use supporting materials, such as on-line computer demonstration, presentation software, or overhead transparencies, in a manner that most effectively brings your point across to the audience. Whatever modes of presentation you choose to use, you should be certain that the necessary hardware is both availabale and functional prior to the presentation.
The presentation will be evaluated by these standards:
The presentation should not exceed 45 minutes, allowing five minutes for for questions and comments by the audience. The group leader should introduce the presentation, the project, and the team members.
Each class member in the audience will critique the presentation as a part of their coursework.
