Recently, the online defense work of 2020 graduates of our university has been successfully completed. From April 17 to May 23, more than 2800 graduates from seven schools of our university successfully completed the online defense and handed in a satisfactory answer for their four-year study.
The traditional defense has been changed into "online defense", and the quality of the standard remains unchanged
In order to ensure that students graduate as scheduled during the epidemic, our university has issued the notice of Wuhan Huaxia University of Technology on graduation design (Thesis) defense in 2020, which made it clear that all the defense work would be carried out online. The online defense was divided into three parts: public defense, general defense, and the second-time defense for those students who fail to pass the first-time defense.
To ensure the quality of graduation design (thesis), the Dean's Office of our university has made detailed instructions in the notice on the implementation rules of online defense, defense procedures and process management, technical requirements of online defense platform and the preservation of defense materials. Based on the actual situation, each college has carefully formulated the working arrangement of "online defense", established the "online defense" committee and the defense working group, scientifically and reasonably arranged the defense groups and time, conducted the defense qualification examination for the students in advance based on the relevant provisions and requirements of the school's graduation design (thesis), and granted the students who meet the requirements of thesis defense.
To make sure the completion of online defense, schools select Tencent Meeting as the platform for "online defense". In the early stage of graduation design, teachers from each defense group discuss repeatedly, download and explore the software in advance, drill in advance according to the normal defense process, and make plans in advance for the problems that may occur during the online defense to ensure that there is no risk.
During the defense, the students displayed the supporting materials in the form of PPT by sharing the screen. The members from the defense team asked questions about the theoretical knowledge and design methods of the thesis, and the students answered one by one. Various schools recorded and archived the "online defense" by means of full-screen recording, staged recording and individual recording of the student’s responses, so that the entire defense process can be traced back and reviewed. During the defense, other teachers and students could also observe at any time and any place.
The schools are fully prepared to highlight their characteristics
In order to ensure the openness, fairness and impartiality of the online defense, the school of Information Engineering has made use of the professional directors to create lottery mini-programs, solitaire mini-programs, and defense countdown reminders, etc., to ensure the perfect effect of the defense site.
The school of Art Design and Media has integrated school-enterprise cooperation perfectly. Students will use the enterprise's project as the topic of graduation design (thesis). The instructor of the enterprise participated in the online defense and asks questions on the spot to ensure that the real project has the best advantage.
The students from the school of Business took their internship enterprise "Hema Xiansheng" as the research object, focus on the research of the forefront of logistics, analyzed the management problems of chain enterprises under supply chain risks, and better reflect the combination of theory and practice.
The topic selection of the school of Foreign Languages is diverse, involving literature, translation, pedagogy, business, Eastern and Western cultures, and languages. In addition, experts from outside the universities were invited to participate in the review of outstanding papers, and the blind review method was adopted.
The school of Intelligent Manufacturing combined the theme of the ninth mechanical innovation design competition. Students closely connected their graduation design with actual life. Topics include mechanical devices that help the elderly to live alone and modern smart home mechanical devices. Their major is tightly integrated with the social demand.
The thesis “The Cloning and Construction of Genes Containing Norovirus Major Capsid Protein” by the students of the school of Pharmaceutical Engineering has a novel topic and is directed by Dr. Zhang Gaobo from the Department of Biopharmaceuticals. The experimental part of the thesis was completed at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The student has overcome many difficulties. After hardships, he successfully completed the graduation thesis and won unanimous praise from the judges.
Inspired by the impact of the epidemic, the students of Civil Engineering College carried out the planning and research of resilient city from the perspective of public health. Considering the severe weather (hail, heavy rain, etc.) suffered by Wuhan during the epidemic period, combined with the great flood disaster in 2016, from the perspective of resilient city, the research was conducted on the planning strategy of Wuhan sponge city, which fully demonstrated the combination of current facts and students A keen sense of touch and vision.
Strive to create an environment for defense, and feel full of online defense ceremony
In order to let the judges and the students have the graduation design (thesis) defense in a more real "defense scene", the graduation design working groups of each school specially made the virtual background picture with the school logo as the background of graduation design (thesis) defense, and the teachers and students took the screen "cloud photo" and so on, so that the students can also feel the full sense of ceremony in front of the screen.
In the process of defense, the teaching supervision office and the dean's office of our university track the online defense of each school. From the organization of the oral defense, the online presentation of the students, and the instant response of the students to the teachers’ questions, all the processes and requirements are consistent with the offline thesis defense.
Huang Guofu, director of the teaching supervision office, said that the graduation project (thesis) defense is the last class of students' college career. It is the display of the comprehensive practical ability of applying the theoretical knowledge learned in the four years of university into practice, and the process of mutual learning, self-improvement, continuous improvement and learning. Serious defense discipline, strict defense procedures and process management are the performance of being responsible for students and the embodiment of good academic atmosphere. This year's graduation defense has been changed from offline to online. Although the form of defense has changed, the quality standard of thesis review has not been lowered, and teachers and students are more fully prepared. At the same time, online defense is also conducive to the supervision and teaching management departments to play a more comprehensive role. They can enter the video conference rooms at any time, improve the inspection coverage, and play a good role in supervising the defense process management and thesis review quality.
