Three Minute Thesis 3MT® finalists have been chosen through stiff competition during three competitive heats this past week. With presentations covering disciplines in the sciences, humanities and medicine, 13 masters and doctoral students were chosen from a field of 36 and are now ready for the finals on March 21, 2018.
Three Minute Thesis 3MT® is an annual competition where challengers have three minutes to explain their research and its importance or relevance, using only a single static image or slide to illustrate their topic.
At the University of Manitoba, 3MT® is part of an overall strategy to highlight our graduate students, promote research at the University of Manitoba, and connect with the community.
During the heats, panels of judges from within the faculties assessed the presenters on comprehension, engagement and communication style. Now, three different judges from the broader community will determine who will advance to regionals and compete for the opportunity to represent the U of M at a national competition.
