UNIVERSITY OF NIGERIA MAIDEN THREE MINUTE THESIS COMPETITION FOR DOCTORATE (PhD) STUDENTS

The University of Nigeria, Nsukka presents the Maiden Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition organized by the Faculty of Agriculture, in partnership with Information Communication and Technology (ICT), Unit and the School of Post Graduates Studies, University of Nigeria, Nsukka.

Background

The idea of Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition originated from University of Queensland (UQ), when the State of Queensland was suffering severe drought. To conserve water, residents were encouraged to time their showers, and many people had a three-minute timer fixed to the wall in their bathroom. The then Dean of the UQ Graduate School, Emeritus Professor Alan Lawson, borrowed the idea and invented the 3MT Competition for higher degree candidates.

 

3MT competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases students’ capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
