Paulina Eberts takes home First Place and the People's Choice Awards in the 7th Annual Three-Minute Thesis Competition

Paulina Eberts, a doctoral student in the College of Science and Engineering and Chemical Engineering program took home the First Place and People's Choice Awards at the event on Friday, November 11. Eberts will represent the University of Minnesota at the Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools (MAGS) 3-Minute Thesis competition in Spring 2023.

The Three-Minute Thesis Competition challenges graduate students to present their research in just 180 seconds, in a way that can be understood by an intelligent audience with no background in the subject. This competition helps our graduate students develop presentation and communication skills; the benefits of preparing for a three-minute thesis competition are valuable regardless of career path, degree objective, or discipline. Participants are allowed to refer to one, static slide during their presentations, but may not use any other props or media.

Doctoral student Apoorva Limaye from the Medical School, Molecular Pharmacology and Therapeutics (MPaT) program, received the Second Place Award.
