The main part of the thesis is the way you go about defending it. After all the hard work that has gone into the thesis you certainly want to put your best foot forward in front of the committee. The better you are at preparing the defense of your thesis, the more likely it is to be appreciated.
The first thing that you need to do is to check thoroughly if you have followed all the guidelines that have been laid out by the college or university. The way to go about this is to pre-empt what they might be asking you at the interview and to prepare how to go about defending your dissertation in the best possible way.
The committee members need to get the thesis at least a few days ahead of the meeting so that they can go through it and you have already created a wonderful first impression on them.
The forms that need to be signed should be ready so that there is no hassle later to get the committee member’s signature.
The best thing is to ask other students who have already gone through the same process so as to find out what they had to face. This will give you a fair enough idea about the kind of things to expect and the questions that will come your way.
Make certain that you have a speech about the thesis prepared beforehand. This will be about the presentation and what have you got in it. Prepare well enough so that any questions that come your way, you will be able to answer them confidently and in an assertive manner. The way you explain also matters and ensure that you sound passionate about the dissertation so that you are able to talk at length and speak with enough conviction.
A good enough presentation prepared will ensure that you are able to get the right kind of strength and support for your work.
