3MT™ (Three Minute Thesis) is a competition that challenges graduate students to hone their communications and presentation skills by clearly and powerfully articulating their research into a 3 minute oration to a general audience.
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition that assists current graduate students with fostering effective presentation and communication skills. Participants have just three minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their research project to a non-specialist audience. In 2012, over 30 universities across Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and the South Pacific have participated in this fun, highly informative and very entertaining event. UBC is one of the first Universities in North America to host a 3MT competition.
