The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition that fosters effective presentation and communication skills among graduate students. Participants have just three minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their research project to a non-specialist audience. This year the regional competition will be held at the University of Western Ontario (http://grad.uwo.ca/3mt/).

3MT was developed by The University of Queensland in 2008, and is now held at twelve countries around the world. The Office of Graduate Studies is hosting OCAD University’s competition on March 9th, 2015.

The best presentation will go on to represent OCAD University at the provincial finals to be hosted at Western University, in London, Ontario, on April 23, 2015. The top presenter, runner up will receive cash prizes and travel support to attend the provincial event. The audience will also have a chance to vote their favorite presentation for the “People’s Choice” award.
