3MT Competition

DATE: WEDNESDAY, MARCH 29, 2017  |  6:00 PM
LOCATION: NORTHWEST BUILDING AUDITORIUM, TWU

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic speech competition developed by The University of Queensland for research students. Students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. 3MT is not an exercise in trivializing or ‘dumbing-down’ your research, but rather a challenge to consolidate your ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.

WHO CAN COMPETE?

The competition is open to all graduate students at TWU engaged in research-based programs (i.e. eligible for Tri-Agency funding).

WHY PARTICIPATE?

This is a great opportunity to:

  • WIN PRIZES!
  • explain why your research is compelling and valuable
  • connect with faculty, researchers, and other graduate students
  • compete for a spot in the Western Division competition
  • and, possibly, the national competition
  • help promote community involvement and awareness of important research in Graduate Studies at TWU
  • WIN PRIZES!

For those not choosing to compete, this is a chance to come out and support your friends. While a select panel will judge the competition, one of the winners will be chosen by the audience.

*Please download the registration form, complete it and either scan and send it to diane.beaton@twu.ca or deliver it to Room #101B, Fosmark Centre.
