3 Minute Thesis
Okanagan Campus | 12:00pm–1:30pm
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition that assists current graduate students with fostering effective presentation and communication skills. Participants have just three minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their research project to a non-specialist audience.
Founded by the University of Queensland in 2008, the popularity of the competition has steadily increased and 3MT competitions are now held in over 350 universities across 59 countries worldwide. UBC, one of the first universities in North America to host a 3MT competition, has been presenting 3MT since 2011. Competitors present a three-minute maximum presentation to a single, static PowerPoint slide based on research directly related to the student’s current graduate program thesis. All competitors from both campuses will be eligible to win the $200 cash prize during the physical activity heat.
We invite members of the community to attend the physical activity heat virtually! Audience members will be able to vote for their favourite presentation to dictate who receives recognition for “Audience Choice.” RSVP for the Event
