Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Preliminary Round #1

Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Preliminary Round #1 Online

Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an internationally recognized competition that challenges Ph.D. students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in just 3 minutes, in language that anyone can understand. 3MT is not an exercise in trivializing or ‘dumbing-down’ research but requires students to consolidate their ideas, crystallize their research discoveries and capture the imagination of their audience.

All 3MT competitors will be scheduled to compete in a preliminary round. These qualifying competitions will occur in-person in IDeATe Studio B within Hunt Library between January 24 and February 9, 2023 from 5:00 - 6:30 pm Eastern Time. Winners of preliminary rounds go on to compete in-person in the CMU 3MT Championship, on Tuesday, February 28, 2023 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm EST.
