Miami University Graduate Students Win Three-Minute Thesis Competition

More than 50 graduate students participated in Miami University Graduate School's Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition earlier this semester in the traditional face-to-face format.

The 10 finalists competed April 28 in the final round, which, like most other events during these Stay-Safe-Ohio days, was held remotely.

Rose Marie Ward, interim associate provost and dean of the Graduate School, said "I am so proud of the students. Our 10 finalists had to adapt to the new remote environment and be able to present a complex topic without any audience participation."

The 3MT is a research communication competition for graduate students, held at universities worldwide. It challenges participants to present their research in just 180 seconds, in an engaging form that can be understood by an intelligent audience with no background in the research area.
