How to Write and Present a Research Proposal
Dr. Bruce McMillin, Missouri S&T
March 11, 2019
10:00 – 10:50 am
209 Computer Science Building
In your career you will be asked to present your ideas, clearly, concisely, and with the goal of obtaining some sort of resources. To distinguish yourself from the crowd, you must be able to be effective within the short window of time given to you. This presentation will go over some major tenets of proposal writing and presentation, including the Heilmeyer catechism, the elevator pitch, and the ideas of broader impacts of your proposed work. We will have a group exercise, so come prepared with an idea to pitch.
This is open to faculty, students, and staff.
