Design School PhD Student Places 2nd in Three Minute Thesis Competition

Winta Satwikasanti came second overall in the Loughborough Three Minute Thesis competition final held at the Summer Showcase hosted by Loughborough Doctoral College on the 22nd June 2016.

The final featured Winta, and 6 other competitors, one being fellow design PhD student Emily Corrigan Doyle. Emily actually won one of the three preliminary heats that lead up to the final.

Winta’s thesis was titled: “Can access to a Running-Line assistive device improve physical activity level in young people with visual impairment?”  

And Emily’s: ‘Exploring Art Therapy Techniques within Service Design as a means to Greater Home Life Happiness’

The showcase was for all Loughborough University and Loughborough University London postgraduate research students and provided a fantastic opportunity for Post Graduate Researcher’s to share and celebrate their research, network and hear about the University’s six research challenges.

The tense competition required entrants to explain their doctoral research in just three minutes, with one static slide. It was an opportunity to hear about Loughborough’s short term and long term aspirations.

Emily received a £20 amazon voucher for winner the preliminary heat, and Winta won £50 for coming second in the final.
