The campus community can watch grad students try to beat the clock Tuesday in the Three Minute Thesis competition, starting at 1 p.m. in the Ambassador Auditorium, CAW Student Centre.
Now in its fifth year, the contest challenges doctoral and master’s candidates to offer a presentation on their thesis or dissertation topic to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes.
