What is the 3MT competition?
3MT is a 3 minute thesis challenge which is an extended version of an elevator speech competition for students involved in doctoral research. It is a competition branded by the University of Queensland, Australia. Students compete to present their doctoral research in 3 minutes or less to a community of their peers. More information can be found here at the 3MT site. The competition has become popular worldwide. Both the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville and UAMS have hosted 3MT competitions.
Who is eligible to participate?
Doctoral students who have started work on their research and have cleared candidacy exams (or something similar) are eligible.
