2017 Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition

 If you have been waiting to hear about our Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition, the wait is now over!

The 3MT competition is an amazing competition held in universities around the world. For this competition, participants are challenged with the task of condensing their research into a three minute time frame. For those who have never participated in a 3MT before, it’s a great opportunity to come up with an “elevator speech” on your research, which may come in very handy! We welcome grad students at all stages in their research, so even if you are just starting out, please give it a shot!

This year the U of R 3MT conference is going to have two workshops, three heats, and a finale. Registration is now open! Be sure to register early as only 20 participants are able to register for a given heat session. The deadline to register is Wednesday February 15, 2017 at 11:59 pm

All of the details on the competition (registration, eligibility, rules, etc.) can be found under the 3MT Conference tab at the top of our website.
