The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition challenges students to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. 3MT cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills.

Currently enrolled master's and doctoral students who are actively engaged in original research are eligible to participate in the competition. Students must be available to participate in person for one of the preliminary rounds and for the final competition, if selected.
