UK to Host Second 3-MT Competition for Doctoral Students
The University of Kentucky (UK) Department of Veterinary Science will host its second annual Three-Minute Thesis (3-MT) competition for PhD candidate (i.e., post-qualifying examination) graduate students to present their research projects on April 7 at 3 p.m. in the UK Gluck Equine Research Center auditorium.
Daniel Howe, PhD, professor and director of graduate studies in the UK Department of Veterinary Science, said the competition’s purpose is to, “encourage the students to develop skills in communicating their research in a very concise and efficient manner.”
The 3-MT, which were originally developed at a university in New Zealand, rules allow students three minutes to discuss their research using only one presentation slide and no gimmicks (e.g., props, costumes, songs, etc.)
Three faculty members from various departments in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment will judge the competition
