Upcoming Events




The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an internationally recognized competition for thesis-based graduate students in which participants present their work and its wider impact in three minutes or less. The event helps graduate students present their research in an accessible and compelling way with the assistance of only one static slide. 

To make it into the finals you need to participate in one of the heats which will happen in late February with the top eight moving on to the finals in late March. The winner will receive a $1,500 prize and move on to the Western Regional Finals. The 3MT is an excellent opportunity to develop your presentation and communication skills with expert feedback and hands-on workshop and training.
