OCAD U 3MT 2019 finalists & Dean Graduate Studies: L to R – Alana Boltwood, Afrooz Samaei, Teresa Lee, Dr. Ashok Mathur

Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a research communication competition which challenges graduate students to present a compelling oration on their thesis (or major research project) and its significance in just three minutes in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. 3MT is an exercise in consolidating and clarifying research discoveries in a clear and compact manner.

OCAD University’s 3MT competition is an excellent opportunity for the OCAD U community to hear about the dynamic work of graduate students at OCAD U. Students will present concise summations of the research they are conducting for their thesis or MRP and how they are pushing the limits of traditional art, design and academia.

The competition will start at 3PM on Thursday, April 16th, 2020 and will take place online via Zoom. The join Zoom link will be sent out the day prior to the competition via email. The deadline for registration is Friday, April 10th 2020 at 11:59 p.m. We hope to see you then! Don’t want to compete? Feel free to watch as an audience member.
