Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Event

3MT, Three Minute Thesis

Alumni

Three Minute Thesis

NMU began its annual participation in the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition in 2018 and continues to expand its programming. Each year, NMU students will compete for recognition, prizes, and a spot in the regional competition. Three Minute Thesis was developed by The University of Queensland (UQ) in 2008. "3MT cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience."

Each candidate is limited to three minutes and one static PowerPoint slide to aid in the presentation of their thesis research. Students must be actively enrolled in a graduate program and must present original research.

This year's Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition will be held on Tuesday, February 20th, 2024 in the  Northern Center Ballroom IV from 3pm-5pm.
