Three Minute Thesis - Faculty Final 2014

University of Adelaide thesis project explained in just three minutes, using only one PowerPoint slide? That's the challenge nine of our research students tackled in the Faculty Final of the national 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition.

The ability to effectively communicate research impact is a skill that all of our researchers must develop. Our research students competed in the Faculty Final event, with two winners selected to progress to the University Final in September.

3MT is a unique opportunity for our students to share their innovative ideas and creativity with a non-specialist audience, and allows the University community to hear from some of our future research stars.
