One scholar.

One slide.

One panel of judges.

Three minutes to give it all you've got.

The Three Minute Thesis competition or 3MT, is an annual competition held in over 200 universities worldwide. It is open to Master's and PhD students, and challenges participants to present their research in just 180 seconds, in an engaging form that can be understood by an intelligent audience with no background in the research area. This exercise develops presentation, research and academic communication skills and supports the development of research students' capacity to explain their work effectively.

The first 3MT competition at Pacific was held in 2018.
