The graduate student research process at any university can be isolating at times. Often students work within a very small research group or among colleagues with a similar knowledge base. But on Tuesday, March 19 and Wednesday, March 20, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology will put the spotlight on graduate student research as candidates for master’s degrees and PhDs publicly share their discoveries during the annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition.

3MT® is a university-wide competition for graduate students to summarize the key points of their research and its potential impacts to a general audience–in just 180 seconds. The university’s School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies offers more than 30 distinct programs.

Heats

  • Tuesday, March 19
  • Schedule will be posted on the 3MT® website.

Finals

  • Wednesday, March 20 at 2:30 p.m.

Location

  • University of Ontario Institute of Technology
    2000 Simcoe Street North
    Business and Information Technology Building, Mezzanine (second floor)

Visit the 3MT® website to learn more about the competition and participants and to watch the livestream. You can also follow #UOIT3MT on social media for live updates.

The university’s first-place winner on March 20 will advance to the 2019 Ontario 3MT® finals at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
