Academy Events in August 2019


3 Minute Thesis Talk and Poster Presentation

Every year leading up to the IITB Convocation where our graduates receive their dually-badged degrees (second Saturday of August), the IITB-Monash Research Academy conducts the Three-Minute Thesis Talk (3MTT) and Poster Competition. This year, we will conduct the event on Thursday, 8 August 2019.

The 3MTT is an event at which students present their research work in a three-minute talk. They also present their work through posters that are put up at the same venue. A panel judges the talks and the posters to identify the best talk and best poster. The best presenters are given awards at the Oskar Night (our annual awards ceremony) that will be held on Sunday, 11 August 2019.

This year, Reliance Industries Ltd is our sponsor for this fascinating, thought-provoking event.
