Three Minute Thesis Challenge

Graduate students took over the stage last Thursday at this year's rendition of the Three Minute Thesis Challenge, with 10 prestenters working towards a common goal, to deliver their research in three minutes or less.

Along with the chance to show the public what exciting and groundbreaking research they are working on day to day here at UNB, the students were also looking for the chance to be the UNB respresentative at this year's Eastern Regional 3MT competition in Montreal later this month.

After an exciting hour of presentations, Ogbogu Kalu (center) was recognized by the judging panel as this year's 3MT winner, with Mohit Bhargav (left) and Karla Culligan (right) coming in a close second and third place.

Be sure to stay tuned to our Three Minute Thesis section on our website for more photos and videos of the events.

Congratulations to all participants!
