Virtual Three-Minute (3MT ®)
The University of Texas at Tyler
Could you present your 80,000-word thesis or dissertation in three minutes? Do you want the excitement of competing with other graduate students for cash prizes?
The Graduate School will host UT Tyler's Three Minute Thesis (3MT ®) competition challenging
graduate students to present compelling spoken presentations on their research in
just 180 seconds, using language that people outside the discipline can understand.
- A single static PowerPoint slide is permitted (no slide transitions, animations, or ‘movement’ of any kind; the slide is to be presented from the beginning of the oration).
- No additional electronic media (e.g., sound and video files) are permitted.
- No other props (e.g., costumes, musical instruments, laboratory equipment) are allowed.
- Zoom backgrounds are considered props. Therefore, please ensure your background is a blank screen or wall.
- Presentations are limited to three minutes maximum, and competitors exceeding three minutes are disqualified.
- Presentations must be spoken word (i.e., no poems, raps, or songs).
- The virtual format will require a single video submitted as a YouTube link.
- Presentations are considered to have commenced when presenters start their presentation through movement or speech.
- The decision of the adjudicating panel is final.
