You are registering to attend the 3MT competition in person at the Hameetman Auditorium.

The final event for 3MT 2023 will take place on Tuesday, April 25, 2023 at 5:00 pm (Pacific).

Originally conceived by the University of Queensland, the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition challenges Caltech graduate students to explain their research in an engaging and clear three-minute talk intended for a non-specialist audience. This year’s event is jointly sponsored by the Caltech Library and the Graduate Studies Office. Given Caltech’s prominence in science and engineering communities, we feel it's important to give Caltech graduate students the opportunity to practice communicating their science in ways that will resonate and inspire.

We are pleased to partner with Caltech Theater and Public Programming for the event, which is also generously sponsored by:

There will be four prizes awarded:

  • $3,000 for first place
  • $2,000 for second place
  • $1,000 for third place
  • $500 for the audience favorite chosen by attendees

The Caltech Library invites you to make a contribution of any amount to sponsor the People's Choice Award for the 2023 Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition.
