Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland. At IPFW both senior undergraduate students and graduate students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis or research topic and its significance. Capstone projects are accepted for competition on the Fort Wayne campus. These projects must include a level of research and scholarship. 3MT™ is not an exercise in trivializing or ‘dumbing-down’ research, but challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.
