UAMS 3 Minute Thesis Competition







3 Minute Thesis, or 3MT®.   3MT® is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia, whereby students engaged in research have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. 3MT® challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.  Students have 1 slide and 3 minutes to give a presentation. If students go over 3 minutes they are disqualified.  The winner and runner up at each college competition present at Student Research Day.  For more information on 3MT, please visit
