Simon Lamb

Congratulations to Simon Lamb

3MT challenges doctoral candidates to present a compelling spoken presentation on their research topic and its significance in just three minutes and was developed by the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia.  Its success has led to the establishment of local and national competitions in several countries. The first 3MT competition was held at UQ in 2008 with 160 Research Higher Degree students competing. Enthusiasm for the concept grew and competitions are now held in over 350 universities across more than 18 countries worldwide.

Simon Lamb a PhD Student from Engineering has just taken part in this years Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition and gained a 3rd place with his talk 'BIM based Highway Asset Data Management’.

The competition was held on June 9th in Hadyn Ellis Building with a diverse range of entrants from across the University.

Simon’s presentation could only use one slide with no additional props, without singing or rapping and was judged upon providing a clear understanding of the research, conclusion and outcomes.

Simon said “It was a great competition with some really interesting presentations. The key is to engage with the audience and tell a story that you are passionate about’.
