The Three Minute Thesis (3MT(r)) Competition finals are taking place this Thursday and you are invited to attend!

The competition challenges students to present their doctoral research to a general audience in 3 minutes or less.

Attending the 3MT Competition would be an excellent opportunity for you to network and also see the type of research being conducted by other graduate students at UF. Presentation topics range from medicine, engineering, education, public health, and much more.

The event is FREE and we will be serving complimentary  refreshments.

The audience will also have the opportunity to vote and the presenter with the most votes will win the People's Choice award.
