Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Singapore 2019

29 May 2019 3.00PM to 6.00PM SUTD, Lecture Theatre 2

Is three minutes long enough to explain an 80,000-word research? Come listen to the exciting research that Singapore’s postgraduate students have to share – in 12 x 3 minutes!



SUTD is proud to host the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Singapore 2019, sponsored by Springer Nature.

The 3MT, founded by University of Queensland in 2008, celebrates exciting research by postgraduate students. Participants are challenged to effectively communicate their research in a compelling manner to a non-specialist audience – in three minutes.

12 finalists from SUTD, NTU, NUS and SMU will compete for the top two prizes and the winners will represent Singapore at the 2019 Asia-Pacific 3MT Competition held in UQ, Australia.

  • Winner: EUR 2,000 trip sponsorship + SGD 500

  • Runner-up: EUR 1,000 trip sponsorship + SGD 500

  • People’s choice: SGD 300

From the words of our very own SUTD Head of HASS, Prof Lim Sun Sun, ‘The 3MT Competition helps nurture a critical skill for academics, scientists and researchers who must ensure that academic research and its benefits for society are effectively communicated to the public.’.

If you have always been curious about the diverse and varied research that we do here in Singapore, don’t miss this event!
