The Gold Thesis Presentation is an annual activity of the Civil Engineering Society (CES) with the collaboration of the DLSU Civil Engineering Department. It is usually held every last month of the first academic term. The purpose of the said event is to present the researches of the nominated groups for Gold Thesis and announce the awardees who will receive their medal during the graduation ceremony.
This year, the highlight of Gold Thesis Presentation was the video presentation instead of the traditional oral presentation using PowerPoint slides. Each of the nominated group prepared a 5 - 10 minute-video presentation about their researches. This type of presentation allowed the candidates to showcase their studies in an innovative and amusing way of giving information to the viewers.
The activity was held last August 08, 2014 at Y508 seminar room in Don Enrique T. Yuchengco Hall – DLSU. The research presentation was followed by the Gold Thesis Awarding. The undergraduate thesis coordinator, Engr. Richard De Jesus, together with CES President, Kristian Caringal, CES VP-Academics, Kenneth Elevado, and Project Head, Kyle Pineda, gave the Certificate of Awards to each of the Gold Thesis recipient.
