BOZEMAN – Montana State University will host its annual Graduate Student Research Rendezvous, a celebration of research and creativity, on Oct. 19 in the Strand Union Building.
The event is an opportunity for graduate students to present their research or scholarly work as either a poster or in a three-minute thesis format and to receive feedback on their work.
The poster session will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in SUB Ballroom A, followed by the Three Minute Thesis competition from 3:30-5 p.m. in the Procrastinator Theater.
The poster session will feature the research and scholarly work of graduate students from all academic colleges. Each student will stand with his or her poster during the session to engage with attendees and answer questions from the judges. Prizes will be awarded for the top two posters in each category.
In the Three Minute Thesis competition, students will be allowed only one slide and three minutes to present their research to a non-specialist audience. Judges’ and people’s choice awards will be presented.
“The Graduate Student Research Rendezvous is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to grow professionally,” said Dr. Karlene Hoo, dean of the Graduate School. “By participating in the rendezvous, students have an opportunity to present their work in a familiar environment and practice presentation skills in preparation for conferences, thesis or dissertation defenses and job interviews.”
The Graduate Student Research Rendezvous is free and open to the public.
