How To Prepare a Project Report
Report writing is one of the primary objects of any student who are in the threshold of completing their graduation. It is to be noted that the final report is not to be done for sheer formality. This report acts as a tool for judging the professional skill of the new engineer. It is also considered to be an extended service for the engineering students who might require information. Remember this report will be subjected to critical analysis by many readers. Hence to prepare the final report, an engineering graduate must have good knowledge about the practical skills that will be required to solve an engineering problem. All sorts of resources must be compiled to create a report. Experimenting by using the lab, analyzing the theories, observation, details with regard to how to use the equipments, and work experience with others. The most important aspect is one must have a good flair for writing and ideas must be well communicated and the information should be authentic. There are structural guidelines that one needs to follow while preparing a project report for final year engineering. This format is applicable to all types of students. Title Page

The following details must be given
· Title
· Authors full name
· Discipline and degree
· Appropriate industrial and other collaboration
· Month and year of submission
It is important that this page will not show any page number Abstract
Here one has to pint out the main ideas of what the project is about, how it was visualized, and what has been achieved. All this must fit into one page. Content List
Here one must give a complete list of what the report will contain including the abstract. Make sure that the title page is not included in this list. Here you will be providing chapter wise list. List of Tables/Figures

A list of tables and figures must be provided if the report contains tables/figures. The list must include table/figure number, title of the table/figure and also page number. These must be numbered sequential throughout the document. The table/figure must highlight clearly the points you are making. Fit the contents of the table within a page. Use a smaller font if necessary or place it in a landscape mode.

It is normal to thank all the people who have helped you and provided support. It could be your guide/supervisor. Acknowledgements should be short and business like. Background.
This area deals with the subject area of the project.
· Chapter 1 : Background
- Motivation
- Problems description
- Objectives of the work
- Organization of the report
Here you must include specific topic related problems that you would be researching. Include your research design, hypothesis etc. · Chapter 2: Introduction
- Details of relevant theory
- Review of past/reported work
- Brief introduction of the proposed work/solution
This is the main body of the report. This will include the following: · Chapter 3: Deals in accordance with the title that is to be researched. - Main work
- Theory
- Simulation software
- Solution approach
- Design or circuit
· Chapter 4:
- Method to be described
- Presentation of Data
- Results
- Findings
· Chapter 5: Evaluation [ this could be an optional]
- Provide objectives of evaluation
- Compare with other works
· Chapter 6: Conclusion
- Review of the project in brief
- Reiteration of important findings
- Suggestion of future work

This has to be numbered sequentially with Appendix 1. Numbering of pages will include appendices. References and Bibliography
Usually a number of reference materials will be used in a report. The use of source material should be explicit in the report. Every item mentioned in the report must have an entry in the reference list. There are many styles that are followed like APA etc. It follows a sequential order Books

Title of the book, name of the author, year of...
