Three Minute Thesis Competition

An 80,000 word Ph.D. thesis would take 9 hours to present. Your time limit…3 minutes.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia. This will be an opportunity for students to concisely summarize and clearly communicate a well-conceived thesis/dissertation project, compelling data collected, and a novel story to share. The ability to do this in three minutes or less allows the student to develop academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Graduate or undergraduate students must be near to or already completing a thesis or dissertation. They must also be physically present to compete and only one presentation topic per applicate.
