EECS Computer Science Graduate Student Reaches the Finals of the Three Minute Thesis Competition

Competition finals will take place at 1:30pm, Wednesday, April 3 in the Student Union Ballroom, Room 272

Two of the ten graduate students who were nominated from the Tickle College of Engineering and Bredesen Center to participate in the 3MT (Three Minute Thesis) competition have reached the 3MT finals. This is a great achievement by our students in communicating their research to a general public.

John Reynolds is a PhD student in Computer Science, and is one of the two graduate students who has reached the 3MT finals. He will be participating in the finals on Wednesday with his presentation titled “Exploring Natural Patterns.”

The 3MT competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
