Dear students,

Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), through its School of Graduate Studies (SGS) is organizing a UPM Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Final Competition 2019. In relation to the same, we would like to invite you (as an audience) to attend the undermentioned event:

Event: UPM Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Final Competition 2019
Date: 19 March 2019 (Tuesday)
Time: 8.00 am - 1.00 pm
Venue: Auditorium Radin Umar, Faculty of Engineering, UPM

About 3MT
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) first developed by the University of Queensland and now carried out in universities around Australia and New Zealand, is a competition wherein PhD students present their research projects to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes. Some of the more prominent universities who organize 3MTs annually apart from the University of Queensland, include, the University of Melbourne, the University of Western Sydney, the University of New South Wales, Victoria University, and the University of Auckland.

In Malaysia, University Putra Malaysia, together with University Malaya, is one of the first to introduce 3MT as part of its effort to encourage a vibrant community of research students.

Given the strict time frame, 3MT will compel students to primarily focus on their problem statements, and subsequently, the ways in which their research projects represent concrete solutions to these problems. Specifically, students will have to present their research topic, the research methodology and results, as well as the impact and contribution of their research. All of the above will take place in a context that is not only public, but also educational, fun and competitive. The competition tests students’ abilities to communicate the contents of their research to a public audience comprising people outside the students’ respective fields of study. Both the lay audience and the strict time frame will enable students to reinforce their ideas, and to avoid either overly complex terminology or over simplification. To determine a winner, the competition judging panel will decide which among the presentations communicated their ideas intelligently and engagingly to the non-specialist audience.

Attached herewith is the event poster for your perusal.
