2016 3MT Finalists

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT™)  is an academic competition that assists current graduate students with fostering effective presentations and communication skills. Participants have just three minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their research projects to a non-specialist audience. 

The inaugural UAlberta 3MT competition was held in 2015 and the event continues to grow every year. Some departments hold their own 3MT competitions as departmental finals but all graduate students are welcome to present at the semi-finals. The UAlberta Finals winners receive a cash prize and a trip to the Western Canadian Regional Finals.

Last year, UAlberta nursing student Oluwakemi (Kemi) Amodu won UAlberta, the Western Canadian Regional Finals, and advanced to the Canadian 3MT Finals for her presentation that raised awareness about women’s health. Read her story and watch her three minute presentation
