Presentation skills are increasingly becoming essential in the engineering profession. This research addressed the importance of presentation skills for engineering students and presents the results of a peer-assisted learning 'student-teaching' episode. The assessment has been carried out through a questionnaire completed during the teaching episode to ascertain the skills required for effective presentation. Initial results indicated students appreciated the opportunity to engage with a student-led session and believed that this approach enhanced relationships amongst themselves and their lecturers.
