3MT Student Competition

PhD and professional degree students from partner institutions attending the 2016 McDonnell Academy Symposium will participate in special adaptation of UQ’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition.

Developed in 2008, UQ’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is now an internationally recognized research communication competition.  Initial heats have been held virtually to select finalists who will present during final rounds held during theme sessions on Day 2.  Three winners will be chosen – one from each theme.  Winners will present winning 3MT presentations to the larger audience of attendees at the Symposium dinner on September 23rd.

Further information on the Symposium’s competition is available here. For general information on UQ’s 3MT® competition, please visit http://threeminutethesis.org/.
