Three minute thesis Competition 3MT™
3MT judges, (L-R) Professor Vicki Sara (UTS Chancellor), Professor Attila Brungs (Deputy Vice Chancellor Research) and Ms Lesley Parker
2013 UTS final 3MT™ competition
On 21 August, 2013 at the UTS final 3MT competition, 11 UTS PhD students from across UTS explained the who, what, when, where and why of their PhD research on stage in front of a panel of judges and a wide audience of students, staff and friends and families. The 11 finalists were vying for some serious cash prizes.
Their presentations were judged by three judges who had the task of deciding on two prizes, the winner and the runner-up. The audience also had a challenging task of choosing the people’s choice award. This year’s judges were: Professor Vicki Sara, UTS Chancellor, Professor Attila Brungs, UTS Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research), and guest judge Ms Lesley Parker.
Students were only allowed one PowerPoint slide during their short 3 minute presentation. The 2013 finalists captured the attention of the audience with their interesting, creative and humorous explanations of their current research. The standard of the finalists was extremely high and the panel of judges, after a long deliberation agreed on the winner and runner up.
- Brett Hagelstein (FEIT ) - First prize - $3000 plus funding to attend the final at UWS
- Daniel Wangpraseurt (Science) - Runner up - $1000
- Sabine Allida (Health) – People’s Choice - $1000
UTS wishes Brett all the best at the Trans-Tasman 3MT Finals at UWS.
