Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia.
3MT (Three Minute Thesis) is an international research competition where graduate students have 3 minutes to present their research and its impact to a panel of non-specialist judges and peers. The exercise develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills. It also supports the development of research students' capacity to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience. This year marks the fifth time York University has participated in the Canadian competition.
