The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition challenges graduate students to present their thesis and its significance in just three minutes and one slide. The competition cultivates students' academic, presentation, and research communication skills, and celebrates exciting graduate research taking place at Simon Fraser University. Students in thesis and non-thesis based graduate programs in computing science, engineering science, mechatronics and sustainable energy engineering are invited to participate in the Faculty of Applied Sciences (FAS) heat for a chance to win cash prizes and advance to the SFU Final.
In 2022 the FAS heat will be held asynchronously, where student presentation videos will be posted on this webpage for online judging.
