Usman Bin SHAHID, CBE PhD student under the supervision of Professor Minhua SHAO, received the Champion Award and the People's Choice Award in the HKUST 3MT Competition with his presentation “Electrochemical Ammonia Synthesis”.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ). It "cultivates students' academic, presentation, and research communication skills" and "increases their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialists audience".
The School of Engineering (SENG) started hosting the 3MT® Competition in 2014. In 2018, through the collaboration of SENG and the Fok Ying Tung Graduate School (then the Office of Postgraduate Studies), the Competition was expanded to the university level and welcomes research students from all the schools and program offices to participate.
