Dear Faculty Members,

It’s time for this year’s 3MT!

‘Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) celebrates the exciting research conducted by Ph.D. students around the world. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), the competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. Competitors are allowed one PowerPoint slide, but no other resources or props’. For more info about the competition please visit: https://threeminutethesis.uq.edu.au/

We request you to encourage your graduate students to participate in the 3MT competition.This is an opportunity for them to get their research work noticed at the regional, national and even international levels. There will be prizes for the top presentations and the winner will be sponsored by the Graduate School to participate in the 2018 MAGS (Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools) competition. Please feel free to go through the GSG website for guidelines and other important information pertaining to the presentations.The students have also been informed about 3MT and have been emailed the registration form through their respective department GSG representatives.
