  • Three-Minute Thesis Challenge

  • The Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) Challenge is an academic research competition that helps graduate students build effective presentation and communication skills. Participants are allowed just three minutes and one static slide to explain the breadth and significance of their thesis research project to a non-specialized audience. The challenge was developed by the University of Queensland, Australia, in 2008 and is now held at more than 600 universities in 65 countries around the world.
