Can you explain your research in three minutes in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience? If your answer is yes, this competition is for you.
The first 3MT competition was held at Queensland University in 2008. The competition became a phenomenon and spread across the globe like wildfire. Many universities worldwide adopted the competition. Graduate and Ph.D. candidates who are working on a thesis or a dissertation are eligible to compete.
Each competition begins with preliminary rounds. Once the preliminary rounds are complete, the final completion takes place with the top ten contenders. There are three winners in the final competition: first place, runner up, and people’s choice. Each winner is awarded a monetary prize. The first-place winner will also receive a travel award to represent NCCU at the regional finals.
