  1. 3MT - Three Minute Thesis Competition in MLCS

    February 09 2016

    MLCS has agreed to host a departmental Three Minute Thesis competition on February 9th, at 2 pm (during coffee hour). The top three winners of this competition are automatically registered to compete in the FGSR competition in March. This is a great way for students to showcase their research to a broad audience. Students are asked to select one slide (it can be an image, a graph, a chart, whatever makes sense for their research) and to tell their research story in about three minutes. For more information about the 3MT, see the information at FGSR here: https://uofa.ualberta.ca/graduate-studies/professional-development/workshops-classes-and-events/3minute-thesis/what-is-a-three-minute-thesis
