2019 3MT finalists

2019 Three Minute Thesis university-wide competitors

Are you wondering why there are more finalists in some faculties than others?  It all amounts to the number of competitors who participate per faculty.  You'll be happy to know that regardless of the number of competitors, the ratio of finalists to spots in the university-wide competition stays the same (usually 1 in 10).
