Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an internationally recognized competition that challenges PhD 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.

At this Championship event, eight finalists will compete for prizes given for 1st ($3,000), 2nd ($2,000), 3rd ($1,000) as well as the People's Choice ($500) and Alumni Awards ($500).

This event is open to the public.

Please note that due to current COVID-19 restrictions, the 2022 3MT Championship will be held in accordance with campus in-person activity protocols and requirements.
