Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Engineering students inevitably are confronted with project presentations. The audience often is a blend of listeners from academia to industry. Effectively delivering a message requires both understanding the audience and tailoring the message appropriately. Academic interest often will be focused on methodology, and industry on results. The conclusions in this article are that there is no ideal presentation format but that the presenter should be knowledgeable about the topic, recognise the diverse needs or expectations of the audience and use technology appropriately.
