Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland which challenges graduate students to present a compelling oration on their research and its significance, in just 3 minutes, in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
Clemson University's Graduate Student Government and the Graduate School co-hosted Clemson’s first 3MT competition in April 2014 as one of the premier events of the University’s first Research and Innovation Month. Each entrant was judged on delivery and content by a panel of judges that included staff, faculty, and community members. Twenty finalists advanced to the final round. Competition was so fierce that there was a tie for 1st place and a tie for 3rd.
