Please join Graduate Women in Science and Engineering (GWiSE) for our annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition! This year the 3MT competition will take place on Wednesday November 17th, 6pm-8pm in Snell Library 090. Our Keynote speaker Dr. Jo Viney, an entrepreneurial scientist, a self-described “drug-hunter”, and an experienced biotech executive, will help us kick start the event with a short presentation on the importance of Science Communication both in academia and in industry.

What is the Three Minute Thesis Competition?
The Three Minute Thesis competition or 3MT, is an annual competition held in more than 200 universities worldwide. It is open to graduate students, and challenges participants to present their research in just 180 seconds, in an engaging form that can be understood by an intelligent audience with no background in the research area. This exercise develops presentation, research and academic communication skills and supports the development of research students' capacity to explain their work effectively. And of course a chance to win some amazing prizes!
