The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition.
Higher degree research students must communicate the significance of their research to a non-specialist audience in three minutes with one simple power-point slide. It is an exercise that develops skills students will need when pitching to government and industry, as well as in explaining their research to their friends and families!
The first 3MT was held at the University of Queensland (UQ) in 2008 and enthusiasm for the 3MT concept led to its adoption in numerous universities and the development of an international competition, with the Inaugural Trans-Tasman 3MT competition held at UQ in 2010. Research higher degree students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis topic and its significance.
3MT is not an exercise in trivialising or ‘dumbing-down’ research but forces students to consolidate their ideas and crystalise their research discoveries (from UQ website). Please feel free to contact us about any aspect of the 2013 Three Minute Thesis competition at 3MT.UWS2013@uws.edu.au
UWS Parramatta campus is located on the corner of Victoria Road and James Ruse Drive, Rydalmere. Please visit UWS interactive Maps for directions to the venue.
