3MT is a research communication competition developed in 2008 by the University of Queensland in Australia. The premise of the competition is to develop academic, presentation, and research communication skills. 3MT® supports the development of students’ capacity to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience. Contestants have three minutes to present compelling orations on their thesis or dissertation research and its significance and value. One PowerPoint slide is required with no animation permitted. 3MT® is not an exercise in “watering down” research; rather, it forces students to consolidate their ideas and concisely explain their research discoveries.

This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
