3-Minute Thesis Competition

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competiion is simple: in no more than three minutes (and not a second more!), students must communicate the key concepts and significance of their own research, while engaging their audience. The 3MT competition can be tremendously enriching and is the perfect opportunity for you to develop your academic and personal communication skills. Members of the audience must be able to understand the passion behind your research, but also how your research can be useful to today's society. 

Winners of the local 3MT competition receive cash prizes and the opportunity to represent uOttawa at the provincial competition in April 2019! 

Additional information on the 2019 3MT competition will be available soon.
