Three Minute Thesis 2018

January 29, 2018

One slide. Three minutes. Cash prizes. Give voice to your thesis in SFU's annual Three Minute Thesis competition.

Three Minute Thesis (3MT) gives you a fun opportunity to talk about your research in a supportive and engaging environment. It will also allow you to:

  • Improve your presentation skills
  • Share your work and make connections with other SFU graduate students
  • Develop knowledge translation strategies for your research
  • Have a ready answer next time a relative asks about your work

Faculty heats and Wildcard heats (for students who can't attend their faculty's heat or who's faculty does not have a heat) will take place during February and early March. Winners of these heats will be invited to the SFU Finals.

SFU 3MT Finals:

  • Date: Monday, March 19, 2018
  • Time: 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
  • Location: SFU's Big Data Hub, ASB 10090, Burnaby campus
The best presenter across the university will receive $1,000, and the best thesis-based presenter will be flown to Saskatchewan for the Western Regional Finals at the University of Regina. Second place will receive $500 and the People's Choice Winner (based on audience votes) will receive $250.
For more information about 3MT, please see the event website. Register to participate in your Faculty heat or the Wildcard heats through myInvolvement under "Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Fellow Opportunities".
