Ph.D. thesis defense at DTU Fotonik
The best way to mentally prepare for your thesis defense talk is to listen to other thesis defense talks. I actually went and got a few talks on DVD (the good ones that I remembered). If their research is on a similar topic as your own, this would be more ideal-but take what you can get. When you watch the talk, ask yourself what makes it good or bad? Were they enthusiastic and sincere? Did they keep the energy throughout the talk? Were there some rough areas of the talk? When nerves are running high, talks may not go as expected. You can battle this nervousness by showing up well-prepared. If you are, the thesis defense talk is just a formality.

A Committee Recommendation Form must be submitted to the Graduate College at least three (3) weeks prior to the dissertation defense. The staff in the Graduate College reviews the Committee Recommendation form and, if the recommended committee meets Graduate College guidelines, approval is given by the Dean. The academic status of the student is checked to ensure that s/he is in good academic standing. A letter is then prepared by the Graduate College to each member of the committee asking him or her to serve on the committee. The letter is sent to the graduate program for distribution to each committee member.
Not all of my Ph.D. students have become professors, but the defense gives them full membership in the intellectual world that they've already worked in—and belonged to—for years. They've earned that distinction, and they deserve to receive it in person.

Once you refined your claim, now you can determinewhat kind of defense is appropriate for it and what more you need todo. This is where the psychologically hard part comes, because to create a defensefor your thesis, you're going to have to attack it harder than anyoneelse. What happens if the thesis fails? Negate it and defend that!In a year or so of focussed research, you should be ready for a real thesis defense.This is a reasonable thesis if process X is a serious contender. Thedefense would be an analysis of the limits of process X, i.e., things itcan't do, or things it does wrong, along with evidence that those thingsmatter.Generally, the whole defense will not take more than two hours, butshould take considerably less time. Part of the challenge of a defenseis to convince the committee that you can summarize the important pointsof your work in a very limited time.The committee needs to be able to assess impact and depth. Usually,the committee has some idea of this before the defense, but whatever thestudent can say to make this assessment easier, perhaps just throughemphasis, is likely to make the defense go much more smoothly.2) University Reader who reads and approves the thesis prospectus during the semester the student is enrolled in HON 494, reads the final thesis document and attends the thesis defense during the semester the student is enrolled in HON 495; About two months before the intended defense date, the student should negotiate with the committee the dates for delivery of the various drafts of either their thesis or project documents.3) Second Reader who reads the final thesis document and attends the thesis defense during the semester the student is enrolled in HON 495.
