The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia.

The 2024 Carleton University 3MT is on!

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) at Carleton is a university-wide competition for graduate students in which participants present their research and its wider impact in 3 minutes or less to a panel of non-specialist judges. The challenge is to present complex research in an accessible and compelling way, with the assistance of only one static slide.

Presenting at the 3MT competition increases your capacity to consolidate your ideas and explain your research in a clear and concise manner, and in a language accessible to a general audience. Participating in the 3MT is an opportunity to enhance your communication skills and share your research and ideas with the broader community.

As a participant in Carleton’s 3MT competition, you will have access to training and feedback to support you as you craft and deliver a compelling and engaging presentation.

To learn more about how 3MT presentations are crafted and delivered, watch the 2023 3MT winning presentations here.

First place: $1000

Second place: $500

Third place: $250

“People’s Choice” prize: $150
