3MT competition

Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to attend the second annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) competition at Case Western Reserve University Friday, Feb. 17, from 12:45 to 3:15 p.m. in the Tinkham Veale University Center ballroom.

Developed by the University of Queensland and now held at more than 900 institutions across more than 80 countries, 3MT celebrates the exciting research conducted by graduate students around the world. 3MT challenges students to explain their research and its importance in a way a general audience would understand in just three minutes with the aid of one single slide. 

The top-rated presenters will receive prizes and be celebrated at the 2023 Graduate Awards Ceremony in May. The first-place winner will go on to represent CWRU and compete at the Midwest Association of Graduate Schools Regional Competition in March.

This year’s keynote speaker for the 3MT competition will be Jeff St. Clair, host and reporter for NPR affiliate WKSU ideastream. Attendees will receive a boxed lunch. Snacks and drinks will be available later in the afternoon. Attendees are asked not to eat during the competition presentations.
