Take the 3MT Challenge - This spring, graduate and professional students at UT are invited to participate in our own Three Minute Thesis (3MT©) competition. Three Minute Thesis (3MT©) is a research communication competition originally developed by The University of Queensland in 2008, and now has been widely adopted at universities around the world. In this competition, participants have three minutes and a single slide to present their research to a lay audience. It is a great way to test your skills at communicating often highly technical concepts to the public. Any graduate or professional students preparing a master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation or who play a major role in research-based projects (including case studies) are eligible to apply and be selected to participate. Semi-final competitions will take place in early March, and during Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week (April 3-7), finalists will compete for cash prizes, provided by the Graduate School and participating colleges. If you would like to take the challenge, see the associate dean of your college for details.
