Office of Graduate Education and Life Three-Minute Thesis finale set for today

3-Minute Thesis

Ten doctoral students will compete in the grand finale beginning at 6 p.m. today (April 3) in the Mountainlair Ballrooms as five faculty and staff members judge for first, second and third place winners. 

The WVU community is also invited to attend and vote for the People’s Choice Award.

The internationally renowned 3MT competition, originally founded by the University of Queensland in Australia, challenges doctoral students to present their research topic and its significance in three minutes using a single PowerPoint slide. 

Competitors develop academic, presentation and research communication skills while gaining experience pitching their research succinctly to a non-specialist audience.
