What is 3MT?
Initially created by the University of Queensland(UQ), the 3MT competition is built to cultivate students' presentation and research communication skills. 3MT stands for three minute thesis. The goal of the competition is to effectivly explain the student's current research in three minutes, to an audience of non-specialists.
