Join us for the 2018 rendition of our 3MT challenge!

What is a 3MT challenge?

3MT stands for Three Minute Thesis. Students have three minutes and one power point slide to present their research in an engaging and accessible way to a nonspecialist audience. They are judged on the comprehension/content and the engagement/communication of their presentation by a panel of three individuals from the university community. Participation in a 3MT challenge is an excellent professional development opportunity. In addition, CASH prizes will be awarded, and the winner will also receive an expenses-paid trip to represent UNB in the Eastern Regional 3MT event.

Are you eligible?

Participants are expected to be registered in a Master’s or PhD program and to have made substantial progress on their research and analysis. The presentation must be based on the primary research that the student has conducted for the degree; students who have defended their thesis but not yet graduated are eligible. 

Why should you do this?

Students are often asked to describe their research. Being able to do so in a clear and concise way showcases effective communication and presentation skills, assets for most professional opportunities you will seek after your degree.

This year, our UNB event will be on April 5.
