Event Summary
Dear students, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), through its School of Graduate Studies is organizing a UPM Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Final Competition 2018. In relation to the same, we would like to cordially invite you (as an audience) to attend the undermentioned event: Event: UPM Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Final Competition 2018 Date: 27 March 2018 (Tuesday) Time: 8.00 am - 1.00 pm Venue: Auditorium Radin Umar, Faculty of Engineering (previously known as Auditorium Jurutera) Background details of the 3MT are as follows: 3MT requires participants to describe and explain their thesis succinctly within three minutes in language that is accessible to an intelligent lay audience. This provides participants the opportunity to practice their presentation skills, and also to consider and develop a way of communicating the significance of their research (in simple terms) to interested people. Apart from preparing participants for their viva,they probably had people ask them about their research – that said, the 3MT competition challenges them to articulate a quick and coherent response that can help them in such situations as job interviews and social events. 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.
