Three Minute Thesis Championship - CMU Libraries

CMU's 5th Annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition

Hear some engaging presentations about ongoing research by current grad students!

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an internationally recognized competition that challenges PhD students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in just 3 minutes, in language that anyone can understand. 3MT is not an exercise in trivializing or ‘dumbing-down’ research but requires students to consolidate their ideas, crystallize their research discoveries, and capture the imagination of their audience.
