Three Minute Thesis 2017 – Waite final

Jul 19, 2017, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) celebrates the exciting research conducted by PhD students. It  is a skills development competition that challenges Higher Degree by Research students to explain their research project to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes and with only a single static slide permitted.

The School of Ag, Food and Wine final will be held in the Plant Research Centre Auditorium at 3pm on Wednesday July 19 and everyone is welcome to come along.The event will be followed by afternoon tea.

This year, thirteen students from the School will present their 3MT to a judging panel with the winner and runner-up going through to the Faculty of Sciences final on August 10. The University final takes place in September with the Asia-Pacific competition at the end of that month at the University of Queensland.

The draft presentation schedule is as follows:
