Announcement of Presentations of Graduation Project

Dear EE students,

Graduation project presentations are planned to be held on June 24th, 25th, and 26th, 2020, three consecutive days falling within the final exam schedule; however, letter grades are allowed to be assigned in the following week, which, practically, provides an extra week for the students. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic rules, regulations, restrictions, and procedures, the availability of University premises and use of facilities including equipment and instrumentation seem to be clear after June 29th, 2020. Hence, in order not to lead to any sort of inconvenience, three candidate windows are proposed: July 1st, 2020; July 13th, 2020; and sometime in September 2020. Therefore:

– Those students who believe that their projects are complete may present their projects on July 1st, 2020. Note that those students who are not affected by pandemic but still do not want to present their work on July 1st, 2020, will be evaluated based on fairness criteria and graded accordingly.
– Those students who would like to present their projects on either July 13th, 2020 or sometime in September 2020 will be assigned letter grade I (incomplete).

In this regard, a Google Forms document is prepared and you are recommended to fill out the form accordingly by providing all the details required in order for Department to assess the status of your projects and plan ahead. Google Forms link is given below:
