Three Minute Thesis (must be PhD student to participate)
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition challenges doctoral students to effectively explain their research in three minutes, using language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. Developed by The University of Queensland in 2008 and now held in universities around the globe, the Three Minute Thesis cultivates students' academic, presentation, and research communication skills, thus allowing a broader audience to engage with cutting-edge research and its global impact.
