Three Minute Thesis

PSU Three Minute Thesis Competition

Friday, May 8, 2015, 4:00-6:30pm
Loacker Studio, Lincoln Hall 355
1620 SW Park Avenue, Portland, Oregon

The Three Minute Thesis is a research communication competition designed to help students develop presentation skills by consolidating their research and presenting it succinctly to a non-specialist audience—all in just three minutes. The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic competition developed by The University of Queensland, Australia for Master's and Doctoral students. 3MT began in 2008 and has since spread to 80 universities in a dozen countries. This year Portland State University will host our second competition.

The PSU competition will be held May 8, 2015. The 1st, 2nd, and People's Choice winners will go on to compete in the State Championship on May 16 and will receive a cash award. The events are free and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you there!
