On February 13th, four graduate students competed in this year’s Civil heat of the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition. Staff, faculty and students made up the audience of nearly 50, and enjoyed a sushi lunch while they took in these engaging and informative three minute presentations that summarized the students’ research projects for a non-specialist audience. Congratulations to participants Md Nesar Khadem and Dong Cui, along with Amir Shoolestani, who placed first in the judges’ rankings, and Behzad Shoolestani, who placed first in the “People’s Choice” category.

The UBC Semi-Final event will take place on March 10th, followed by the UBC Final Event on March 12th.
