3. Text

Introductory Pages

Acknowledgements: In the process of carrying out any project, the students would have received help from different persons and organizations. So, all those helps should be acknowledged under this heading. In an academic research, a sample list of people who are to be acknowledged is as follows: • Supervisor (Industry Mentor)

• Members of the department who rendered their valuable suggestions and criticism during the project period • The executives in different organizations who provided data and literature for the research • Institute Mentor

Table of contents: Table of contents is the catalogue of the project report, which summarizes every aspect of the report.

List of tables and figures: In project reports, the data and results are presented in the form of tables for quick grasp. Each and every table must be numbered. The numbering should be such that it is internal to each chapter. For example, if the total number of tables in Chapter 4 is 10, then the numbering should be from Table 4.1 to Table 4.10 and similarly for figures.

Different items under 'Text' are Chapters, Main Sections and Conclusions.

Chapters: The text of the report should be divided into different chapters which are as listed below:

1. Introduction to the industry

A bibliography, the product of the practice of bibliography, is a systematic list of books and other works such as journal articles.
