Presenting Final Year Project to Your Supervisor

Table of Contents

As the presentation demonstrates the major project contributions and their respective outcomes, the students must ensure the generated presentation is concise and focused without any deviations. Any typical presentation should include certain core sections, revealing every project detail.

Getting Ready for your Presentation

All the contents of the presentation can be curated to be a narrative format for effective delivery of project aspects, thereby, the total content need not be excess. Ensure that all the presented major ideas are supported by relevant information, so that it doesn’t sound like data dumping to the audience.

Important sections to consider in the Presentation

For any project presentation, there are certain important sections in it, which are mentioned in the below pointers.

  •  Introduction to the research
  • Research Methodology
  •  Research Outcomes and Interpretation
  • Concluding Remarks to the research
  •  Future Directions

Strategizing your Presentation

After drafting the presentation resources successfully with critical sections, the presentation needs to be strategized in the following way:

  • A short intro and summary of the project needs to be included
  • The research gap needs to be pointed out alongside the research questions
  •  The methodology underlying the research execution needs to be explained
  • All the discovering and outcomes need to be presented in a concise and comprehensible way.
  • The project significance and the contributions made need to be pointed out.
  • Concluding remarks along with the possible extensions could be given.

Delivering the Presentation 

Not just the mere preparation of the presentation resources can be enough for the presentation to be a success, but also the delivery of it plays a critical role. So, the delivery of the presentation needs to be planned accordingly. Do remember that delivering the presentation is one of the factors that secures you more marks from the supervisors.

Tips for avoiding the last-minute hassles during your Presentation 

The following are the tips for avoiding the last-minute hassles during your presentation:

  • The presentation of presentation resources needs to be practiced multiple times, helping you to be fluent during the actual presentation and be aware of the scope for improvement.
  • The entire presentation needs to be rationally and logically structured, so that it can be coherent and followed easily.
  • Professional dress needs to be worn by you, boosting your confidence and enabling you to be competitive.
  •  Appropriate inclusion of pictorials and graphics needs to be done, demonstrating the project aspects and easing the listener’s grasp.
  • The probable questions that the supervisors might ask during the presentation need to be figured out prior to being questioned. Thus, you are well-prepared for the Q&A session.
  •   The time management of your presentation duration needs to be focused, so that no key pointers or aspects of the projects are missed during the presentation.
  •  Always ask for feedback from either your guides or peers for sharpening the presentation skillsets.


The quote “Practice Makes Perfect” goes well with the project presentation, meaning that the success of your project presentation is directly influenced by your level of practice. As much as one present at many events, one develops the presentation skillsets.
