National 3-MINUTE Thesis Competition

Three minutes. Twelve of Canada’s best minds. The power of the spoken word

That’s the formula for Canada’s Three Minute Thesis Competition. It is a friendly but intense contest where graduate students present the complexities of their research in an engaging and accessible way before a live audience. Students, future employers and the Canadian community all benefit from graduate students who communicate clearly and effectively. It is important that Canada and the world knows about the important work these students do. They are an important asset to this country. That’s why CAGS is proud to sponsor this project.
