2024 Graduate 3-Minute Thesis Competition 

The 3MT competition is a presentation that lasts literally 3 minutes and highlights a student’s thesis, dissertation, business plan, or scholarly project. It was started at the University of Queensland in Australia in 2008 and has now spread to more than 350 universities across the world. The purpose of the presentation style is to train students to condense and highlight their scholarly work to an educated, but diverse audience in preparation for job interviews, business interactions, and conversations with colleagues both inside and outside of their discipline.
