Three Minute Thesis Competition Finals
Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is a research communication competition that challenges master’s and Ph.D. students to describe their research topic and its significance in just three minutes to a general audience.
3MT seeks to enhance the profile of graduate students both within university communities and the wider community. 3MT develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of research students’ capacity to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. 3MT is not designed to trivialize or “dumb-down” research, but rather encourage students to consolidate their ideas and crystalize their research discoveries.
Students are allowed to use one static slide, and no additional transitions, animation, video, or props. Presentations are all spoken word, and exclude songs and theatrical performances.
