UHM Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition

April 28, 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Business Administration Building Add to Calendar

In three minutes you can listen to a song, watch a TedTalk, or over-analyze a text message, but can you effectively communicate your thesis or dissertation in an engaging way to a non-specialist audience? We think you can! The Office of Graduate Education is proud to announce its Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition on Saturday, April 28, 2018. We hope you can join us for this exciting event.

Participants of this competition will be challenged to explain their thesis or dissertation research in three minutes or less in a spoken-word format (no raps, songs, videos, etc.) using one (1) static MS PowerPoint slide (no animations, special effects, music, etc.).


  • All UHM masters and doctoral students in good standing.
  • Must be able to report on thesis or dissertation results or findings
