MECHANICS AND GUIDELINES FOR PROJECT STUDY PRESENTATION:
1. Each project team will orally present their projects one at a time. Please
note that the reviewers may not be getting any advance materials and will
be seeing most of the information that is presented for the first time.
Therefore, it needs to be presented in a way the reviewers can quickly get
up to speed on the project, the work completed, results, etc. It would be
helpful if the information is summarized and presented in power point type
format.
2. The order in which the teams will present shall be determined by drawing
lots. To facilitate the order of transition of presentations, this shall be done
one week before the presentation day.
3. Only members of the team who will present their projects and the allowed
audience may stay inside the presentation venue.
4. No member of the project team is allowed to leave the presentation venue
once the presentation has started.

DURING THE PRESENTATION:

1. The time allotted to each team shall be determined by the adviser. Please
observe strict compliance with time. A board at the back will be raised to
notify the team presenters that they only have remaining 10, 5 and 2
minutes respectively to end their presentation. No extension beyond this
time allotment will be given. After the presentation, the Question and
Answer will immediately follow.
2. There shall be 5 minutes of transition time between team presentations. At
this time, the next team to present shall prepare their presentation file or
demos. Delay or interruption due to file errors and the like shall be
counted against the time allotment.
3. All questions shall be entertained only after the presentation.
4. The official language of the presentation is English.
5. Presenters are encouraged to be at their best business attire

6. DURING QUESTION AND ANSWER:

1. The Question and Answer will follow immediately after the presentation.
2. Members of the panel of reviewers will be given a maximum of 1.5 hours
to raise questions or comments to the project team.
3. Members of the panel may direct his question specifically to particular
member of the team in which case that member shall answer the question.
However, a question which is not directed to a particular member of the
team may be answered by any member of the team.
4. A moderator shall remind the panel of reviewers of the remaining Q & A
time.
5. Only members of the panel of reviewers may raise questions or comments
to the presenters and no questions from the audience shall be entertained.

1. The panel of reviewers shall evaluate the project studies based on the
following criteria:
