About the Competition

Developed by the University of Queensland, the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition celebrates the exciting research conducted by PhD students by cultivating students’ academic, presentation and research communication skills.

Participants are judged on the ability to effectively convey the essence and importance of their research in an engaging way to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes, with one PowerPoint slide.

The University at Buffalo 3MT Competition is co-hosted by the Graduate School and Blackstone LaunchPad & Techstars. The event is sponsored by the Innovation Hub powered by UB's Business and Entrepreneur Partnerships.
