This section could start with what’s presented in your planning document. However, it needs to be more focused, and with greater depth.
This part can share some similarities with your planning document, providing what’s been planned have mostly been conducted. But this is also an opportunity to improve (which is expected), making it more focused.
Present the results of the study in a well-structured and coherent manner with in-depth analysis, advanced forms of presentation critically used to good effect.
In this section, expand from your obtained results to:
- Discuss your project outcomes
- Justification of how they were reached.
- Consideration of how the project outcomes were shown to be valid (at what condition/situation/environment etc.)
- Summarize your contributions (improvements/validation in theory, experimental, concept generation, design optimization, feasibility etc.) and acknowledge current limitations of them.
This needs to be done in a structured and coherent approach, showing hierarchy (e.g. major findings, minor findings, etc.)
Review your project by summarize the relationship between the outcomes in section 5 and the aim & objectives.
Consideration of how the project outcomes indicate the potential for future work, justified by results discussion.
Valuable and insightful further work suggested with key technical details presented, supported and justifiable by the project conclusion.
Make recommendations for further work.
