3MT is designed to cultivate students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases student capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. The competition forces students to consolidate their ideas and concisely explain their research discoveries.
The final round will be held at 5 p.m. on Monday, March 26 in the Centennial Hall Auditorium at 100 Auburn Ave., N.E
Congratulations to all finalists!
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition at Georgia State University is sponsored by the Office of the Associate Provost for Graduate Programs and the University Library.
