Oral presentation sessions will run in parallel all-day. Presenters are expected to attend for the duration of their session. Sessions will run 08:30-10:30, 10:30-12:30, 13:00-15:00 and 15:00-17:00. A sign-up sheet for slots within the presentation sessions will be made available closer to the assessment date.

Anyone in the class who will have difficulties attending their scheduled presentation time should contact the Course Coordinator Craig Watterson <Craig.Watterson@vuw.ac.nz> as soon as possible.

Please note that the ENGR 401 presentations are not an examination and consequently will not be listed in the the central university examination timetable, available from the Timetables page or myVictoria accounts.
