Three Minute Thesis (3MT)

research communication competition

Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia.


The 3MT is an academic competition that challenges PhD students to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience.  3MT celebrates the discoveries made by research students and encourages you to communicate the importance of your research to the broader community.
We encourage all graduate students to participate.
The first Washington University 3MT was held on December 6, 2016.  Nine contestants competed in the final event with the three prize winners from different programs which included Social Work, Business, and Engineering.  Don't miss this opportunity to practice your presentation skills, meet other PhD candidates, and have a chance to win up to $1000.00 for academic travel!
