Would it be possible for you to present your thesis in ... "3 minutes?"


Congratulation to our 10 finalists Year 2018


Welcome to Three Minute Thesis® @Chulalongkorn University Presented by Dtac. The exciting competition campaign is hosted by Engineering Graduate Student Association of Chulalongkorn University.

Three Minute Thesis® (3MT) is the competition campaign for graduate students. In general, 3MT gives you 3 minutes to present your thesis or research works with only one static page of PowerPoint or Keynote.

As the second year of 3MT competition at Chulalongkorn university, the competition is scaled up from the last year. We (3MT@CU) would like to diversify the thesis topic and enhance the opportunity for all school to join this interesting campaign. A variety of thesis topics are valuable not only to the university but global since they are applicable and can be further improved for future works. Therefore, all fields of study are accepted for exciting multidisciplinary competition.

The competition is a great addition to graduate students and an excellent opportunity to publicise the work. We hope the 3MT thesis competition contributes benefits to all competitors not only academic knowledges, but also useful expertise in terms of public speaking, effective communication in limited time, and attractive presentation slide technique. These skills will be applicable for further research and works and the campaign could be one of valuable experience for all competitors.


"Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) celebrates the exciting research conducted by Master or Doctoral students.
