Three Minute Thesis – Presenter
3MT® is a university wide competition for Masters and Doctoral students in which participants present their research and its wider impact in 3 minutes or less to a panel of non-specialist judges.
The challenge is to present complex research material in an engaging, compelling way, using only one slide. The three minute thesis competition provides graduate students with an opportunity to refine skills that can be transferred after graduation to diverse career paths. Distilling research into a clear form, without over-simplifying or making overly-complex, and highlighting the wider implications of this research are important skills to carry into post-graduate employment and public service.
Involvement Outcomes: Communication, Initiative, Organization, Research, Synthesis

Presenters deliver a fifteen minute oral presentation of research or engage in a poster presentation at the Undergraduate Research Conference. The work presented is the summation of a student’s research project over the semester or year and is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their research excellence to the university community.
