Three Minute Thesis Semi-Finals, twelve participants were chosen as finalists. The Three Minute Thesis competition challenges graduate students to present their research to an audience of non-specialists in three minutes with a single slide. Presentations are then evaluated by a panel of judges with respect to clarity and engagement. The Graduate School would like to introduce you to some of these finalists as part of Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week.


3MT Semi-Final Competition on Friday, February 28. In keeping with all of the other sessions, each graduate student participant, following the rules of the Three Minute Thesis organization, was given three minutes (no more) and a single slide to talk about their research to a panel of judges, who probably have no experience with their field of study. The judges were looking for presentations that were clear, compelling, and engaging. And the participants did UT proud, indeed. Read more about the competition and the winners.
