Swansea University Three Minute Thesis Competition 2018


Swansea University Three Minute Thesis Competition 2018

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland.

The competition challenges research students to present their research and its significance in just three minutes. 3MT develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of research students' capacity to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. 

In February and March 2018, 3MT heats were run within the Colleges, and now two finalists from each College will proceed to the Swansea University 3MT Final. This will take place on Wednesday 16th May 2018 as part of the Swansea University Postgraduate Research Showcase, organised by the Swansea University Postgraduate Research Office in collaboration with the Impact Acceleration Account (funded by EPSRC and hosted by REIS).

The winner and runner up will announced at an awards ceremony, at 3pm in Room West, Fulton House.

The 3MT final itself will start at 11am in the Taliesin Theatre, Singleton Campus. Join the audience for an exciting snapshot into the incredible diversity of research happening right now here at Swansea!

M2A - Materials and Manufacturing Academy Engineering Doctorate Seminar


Engineering Doctorate Scheme – Annual Seminar & Dinner Tuesday 5th April 2016  

The Engineering Doctorate has been running for over 20 years at Swansea University and has produced over 200 high calibre graduates. It’s a partnership between industry and academia with the primary aim of enhancing industry products and processes through the application of knowledge and skills accrued of the duration of the doctorate. The scheme has grown both in terms of the number of Research Engineers it recruits and in the number of industrial partners. The Engineering Doctorate is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the Welsh European Funding Office, the University, Impact Acceleration Account (EPSRC) and industry.

This event is a chance for our current students to present a paper on their hard work to an assembled audience of academics, industrialists and students. There will also be poster displays detailing some of the technical findings made by our students. The event serves as a fantastic introduction to the EngD and MSc by Research and allows students, industrialists and academics the chance to meet in a less formal environment.
