The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic research communication competition originally developed by the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia. The goal of the competition is for students to verbally summarize their master's thesis or doctoral dissertation research in a compelling way to a non-specialist audience in 3 minutes or less.

Why Participate?

  • Share your work with the greater university community. 
  • Develop academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Consider attending "Delivering Audience-Centered and Confident Research Presentations" workshop designed to prepare students for the competition. 
  • Each competitor will receive a $30 gift card to the Bookstore. 
  • The campus winner will receive an additional $200 gift card to the Bookstore and will go on to represent UM-Dearborn on Friday, April 3, 2020 at the Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools regional competition in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with travel expenses paid by the University.
