3MT/3MP Competition

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is a research communication completion developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia. 3MT develops graduate students’ capacity to effectively explain their research in 3 minutes to a non-specialist audience. A great presentation will tell the audience what the research is, how the doctoral researcher is doing it, what they have discovered, and why the research is significant. Graduate students seeking Master’s Degrees (i.e. M.S., M.A., M.P.H., M.P.A, etc.) or Graduate Certificates should register for the 3MP (Three Minute Pitch) competition.
