06 Feb How To Write A Technical University Project
Every university graduate student has to write a project in his or her final year. Students reading a technical or scientific course have to understand that writing a technical university project has to follow the approved standards of scientific papers and reports.
A technical university project usually has the following basic format: Abstract, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussions and references. The success of your university project depends on how well you treat and write out each of these chapters of your project.
The abstract and introduction is where you catch the attention of whoever will read your project. In this instance we are more concerned about your supervisor and external examiners. Your introduction should give a good explanation of why the work is done. The problem to be addressed should be clearly stated. Relevant background material on your project topic should also be included.
The materials and methods chapter is where you discuss the actual process of your project. This is a very crucial chapter in writing a science project. Here you describe how you conducted the project work. Write a summary of the materials used and their importance in the experiment.
After the materials and method comes the chapter on results. This is where you explain the discoveries you made after conducting the experiment. You might have to present your results with the aid of graphs, tables and other diagrams. Label and write a little explanation below each diagram to explain what it represents. Make it easy for anyone reading your project to be able to connect the diagrams with the results.
In the discussion chapter, your aim is to provide answers to the questions and hypothesis that you raised at the chapter on introduction. It is in this discussion chapter that you prove the worth of your university project. You should state the success or otherwise of the experiments. The difficulties and limitations that were faced. Make mention of and compare your work with one or two results obtained in similar works on record.
A technical university project is a scientific paper as earlier mentioned. You must write out a complete list of works of other scientist that you referenced. The standard method of citation should be followed.
