2014 SCEM 3MT Competition

The School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics held their 2014 3MT Competition for HDR at Parramatta Campus on Tuesday the 1st July 2014. From 2014 presenting in 3MT format is a compulsory component of the research communication training during higher degree research candidature in the School and requires full participation of all HDR candidates. The competition is a selection round prior to the UWS Annual Three Minute Thesis final.

The competition was held in the Janice Reid Pavilion with two streams of students split between Engineering and Computing/Mathematics cohorts. It was a lively event with many strong and informative presentations. Three students were selected from each stream to compete in the final, which was held after all students completed their annual interview.

The water cooler talk in SCEM hallways the next morning indicated that the staff really enjoyed the event and from early evaluation replies the students enjoyed themselves immensely.

The six HDR students selected for the 3MT Finalists Presentation were:

  • Timothy Galvin (Finalist Computing/Mathematics Track);
  • Sangeeta Bhatia (Finalist Computing/Mathematics Track);
  • Kevin Grieve (People's Choice of Computing/Mathematics Track);
  • Md Mahmudul Haque (Finalist of Engineering Track);
  • Idris A Musa (Finalist of Engineering Track);
  • Steve Krezo (People's Choice of Engineering Track).

The outcome of the 2014 SCEM 3 Minute Thesis Competition Final was:

  • Winner (Prize $500): Sangeeta Bhatia, PhD candidate (pictured below)

Joint Postgraduate Research Futures Forum 

The First Joint School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics (SCEM) and Institute for Infrastructure Engineering (IIE) Postgraduate Research Futures Forum SCEM-IIE 2013 is to be held 4-6 June 2013. This new forum provides an opportunity for the HDR and Honours students in SCEM and IIE to present and promote their current research to a broader audience and receive constructive feedback. The forum is essential part of the preparation of our students for confidently communicating (and defending) their research at different forums, ranging from conferences to panels with industry entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.

This initiative is part of a broader vision of SCEM and IIE to enrich the research experience of the HDR and Honours students and prepare them for the challenges of the accelerated technological developments and computationally amplified research capabilities.

The work on organising SCEM-IIE 2013 forum would not have started without the initiative of Professor Kenny Kwok and Professor Wei Zheng.

We wish you fun, inspirational discoveries of each other achievements, garnished with enlightening and enjoyable discussions.

Dean, School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics

 


 

2012 Research Futures Postgraduate Forum 

The School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics Research Futures Postgraduate Forum provides a superb opportunity for all post graduate students to present their research, irrespective of their stage in the research process and to engage in rich discussions about their ideas with fellow students and academics in a supportive research focussed environment.

The School has an outstanding research reputation both nationally and internationally.  This forum is designed to foster and encourage the next generation of researchers who, with the help of dedicated academic staff, will be pushing back the boundaries of current knowledge and making a significant impact on how the world works and our understanding of it.
