3-Minute thesis competition
September 20, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Speakers: Physics & Astronomy Masters and PhD student nominees
Title: 3-Minute thesis competition
Abstract: “Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is a research communication competition which challenges masters and PhD students to present a compelling oration on their thesis topic and its significance in just three minutes. 3MT seeks to enhance the profile of graduate students both within university communities and the wider community. The 3MT Competition is a dynamic cross-disciplinary event. 3MT develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of research students’ capacity to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. 3MT is not designed to trivialize or ‘dumb-down’ research, but rather encourage students to consolidate their ideas and crystallize their research discoveries.”
The department will select the finalists who will compete in the University wide competitions. Contest details can be found on the Graduate School website.
