Applied Research

Advance the frontiers of knowledge, innovate technologies that address the grand challenges of society to serve humanity, and improve the quality of life around the world. While remaining grounded in our rich heritage of classroom instruction, the College of Technology has heightened its efforts in pursuing funded research. We believe that incorporating active research into the curriculum makes for a richer learning experience and reaffirms the practical use-inspired nature of the technology disciplines.

Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) Competition

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland. The competition develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of students' capacities to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience. Graduate students will have three minutes to present a compelling discussion on their research topic, its significance and relevance to the general public. 3MT™ is not an exercise in trivializing or 'dumbing-down' research but forces competitors to consolidate their ideas and crystalize their research discoveries. It is a celebration of the discoveries made by graduate students and will allow the broader community to learn about on-going research at Purdue.
