Each spring the Department holds a special thesis poster event, called MasterWorks, where masters students make presentations of their research to interested Department faculty, students, and guests. We will be in touch with all M.Eng. students at the proper time. Prizes will be given for the best presentations. Here are tips for preparing a poster: http://www.ncsu.edu/project/posters.
If for any reason participation in Masterworks is not possible, students are still required to make an oral presentation of their thesis project. This valuable part of your thesis generally consists of a twenty-minute presentation with a five-minute discussion period with the supervisor and at least one other faculty or staff member. Your supervisor will arrange your presentation. 6A students completing thesis research at work usually arrange the oral presentation with their company supervisor, even if the final document is not completed there.
Supervisors are responsible for arranging oral presentations. While this presentation is not a 'thesis defense', the supervisor may include the quality of the thesis presentation when assigning the final grade.
