3MT 2018 Poster

Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a research communication competition which challenges graduate students to present a compelling oration on their thesis (or major research project) and its significance in just three minutes in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. 3MT is an exercise in consolidating and clarifying research discoveries in a clear and compact manner.

OCAD University’s 3MT competition is an excellent opportunity for the OCAD U community to hear about the dynamic work of graduate students at OCAD U. Students will present concise summations of the research they are conducting for their thesis or MRP and how they are pushing the limits of traditional art, design and academia.

The competition will start at 1PM on Tuesday, April 2nd 2019 in Room 322 at 230 Richmond St. W. The top presenter will also represent OCAD University at the second annual, province-wide 3MT™ competition on Wednesday, April 17th, 2019 at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. We hope to see you then!

3MT History

The first 3MT was held at UQ in 2008 with 160 RHD students competing. In 2009 and 2010 the 3MT competition was promoted to other Australian and New Zealand universities and enthusiasm for the concept grew. Due to its adoption in numerous universities, a multi-national event was developed, and the Inaugural Trans-Tasman 3MT competition was held at UQ in 2010.

During 2011 and 2012 the 3MT competition became even more widely known throughout the world and is now held in twelve countries.
