Three-minute theses

Three students from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering made it to the finals of the Three Minute Thesis competition in this year's Materials Week, sponsored by The Ohio State University Institute for Materials Research. Check out their presentations below:

Ryan Buntain, “Hydrogen Assisted Cracking in Dissimilar Metal Welds for Subsea Service under Cathodic Protection”

Xinpeng Du, “Facile Measurement of Single-Crystal Elastic Constants from Polycrystalline Samples”

Bryan Esser, “From Atoms to Jet Engines: Understanding Structure-Property Relationships from the Ground Up”

Three Minute Thesis, or 3MT®, is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ) whereby doctoral students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. 3MT® challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.
