About the event

Three Minute Thesis is a research communication competition challenging Ph.D. students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in three minutes or less to a non-technical audience.

3MT is not an exercise in trivializing or “dumbing-down” research, but challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a wider audience.

Open to all doctoral candidates in good standing who have completed preliminary exams by the nomination deadline.

Nomination Deadline: Friday, March 1, 2019

Rules and judging criteria can be found at
