WPI Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition is an academic competition that challenges PhD students to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience using only a single static slide. 3MT celebrates the discoveries made by PhD students and encourages their skill in communicating the importance of research to the broader community. The competition takes place annually at numerous universities around the world and was originally founded by the University of Queensland in Australia. WPI hosted its inaugural 3MT competition in 2018, and runs the competition annually each Spring. The 2023 3MT competition is taking place on March 23, 2023 from 1:00-2:30 PM on Zoom. PhD Students interested in competing should register by 5 PM on March 13. Anyone interested in attending the competition should RSVP so we can send you a calendar invite with the Zoom link.
PhD students that have completed their qualifying exam or equivalent milestone in their program are eligible to participate. Student presentations will be evaluated by a panel of judges that will award a first place prize of $1000 and a runner-up prize of $500. The audience will select one presentation for a peoples’ choice prize of $250.
