On March 20 you're invited to join Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs for the annual 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition. The first place winner receives a $1,000 prize and moves on to the provincial competition. The runner-up receives a $500 prize. As an audience member, you will also have the chance to cast your vote for the People’s Choice winner using your smart phone.
The 3MT is a university-wide competition for research-based master’s and doctoral students where competitors have one static slide and three minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their research to a non-specialist audience.
