Every project group will be given 15 minutes to present and additional 5 minutes for answering questions. Points will be taken off for too long (i.e., over 15 minutes) or too short (under 10 minutes) presentations.

  • Q&A time will be also used
    • for the presenting group to disconnect their laptop from the projector while answering the questions, and
    • for the next group to prepare for their presentation (e.g., load the slides or connect their laptop to the projector).


All presenters should be dressed business casual.

  • Best design project

Winners of the awards will be decided by the jury. Prizes will be awarded to the winner groups, if they are present during the awards ceremony.

Every student in the team that wins “Second Best” or “Second Most” award gets 1 bonus point. If a team gets several awards the points will be added up.
