 "One slide, no props, 3 minutes"

3MT® is a university wide competition for Queen’s Masters (thesis or research project) and doctoral students in which participants present their research and its wider impact in 3 minutes or less to a panel of non-specialist judges.

Distilling research into a clear form, without over-simplifying or making overly-complex, and highlighting the wider implications of this research are important skills to carry into post-graduate employment and public service.

This is a unique opportunity to communicate the innovative and significant research undertaken by our graduate students.

Congratulations to our 2017 3MT finalists: Victoria Donovan (Neuroscience), who won first place and the People’s Choice, and Amani Ibrahim (Computing), the runner up. Victoria will represent Queen's at the Ontario 3MT.
