Background and Rationale of the Study A brief description of the problem situation (what is currently the practice or situation, the existing scenario, the current process or practice, etc.) with supporting facts and figures. Statement of the desired condition (what should be the correct practice or situation, scenario, process, etc.). INTRODUCTION : INTRODUCTION A. Background and Rationale of the Study (continued) The discrepancies between the “what is” and “what should be”. Cite the possible reasons for the discrepancies. What is already known about the problem (based on literature). Questions still unanswered or information gaps. INTRODUCTION : INTRODUCTION B. Problem Definition Statement One or two sentence definition of the problem the group hopes to solve with an engineering design. Direct to the point and yet specific. The objectives will support and endeavor the attainment of the solution and/or answer to the problem. INTRODUCTION : INTRODUCTION C. Objectives of the Study The objectives state what the study or project aims to do and find out. Specify the what, why, who, where, and when. General Objective Problem Statement or the Umbrella Question in Objective Statement Form Specific Objectives What the study strives to accomplish INTRODUCTION : INTRODUCTION D. Significance/Importance of the Study The proponent must explain the relevance and usefulness of the study or project. Expected contributions of the study to specific groups or individual users of the results of the study or project. Expected benefits that can be or may be derived from the implementation of the study or project. INTRODUCTION : INTRODUCTION E. Scope and Limitation of the Study The scope and limitations of the study in terms of subject matter covered, beneficiaries or users, project design, capacities, capabilities, applicabilities, etc. This is very essential in containing/limiting the expected solution, to give focus to the project goals and direction. What it can and cannot do. How it does what it can do. Reasons why it can not do what it can’t. REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE : REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE Review the precise definition of the project study problem. Give information on everything connected or related to your project. Avoid of plagiarism. Don’t copy and paste into your paper. It is illegal! Introduction Briefly describe the nature of the problem and explain what led your team as the proponents to choose that particular project. REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE : Body Briefly report what the experts in the field think or what other researchers have found about the topic. Cite and summarize the common findings of several studies reviewed. Cite other similar designs proposed and implemented, and those that are already commercially available. Take note of the features, capabilities, capacities, prices, etc. REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE : Summary or Synthesis Tie together the major findings. Point out similar results as well as conflicting ones. Compare other designs with the one your team has created. Point out the praiseworthy features, weaknesses, deficiencies, limitations, etc. Conclusion Based on the state of knowledge revealed in the literature, your team could now further justify the project. REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE METHODOLOGY : METHODOLOGY This is the heart and life of the report. It must be very complete, lacking nothing. Very thoroughly and exhaustively written. Make it so complete that if it were given to other “competent” person, that person may be able to make or perform the same project study as well as you did. Mention the project study title and its general description or purpose. METHODOLOGY : METHODOLOGY It would contain the most graphics: tables and figures. Observe proper formatting. Flush left.
