UW 3MT is a professional development competition that celebrates the exciting capstone and research experiences of master’s and doctoral students at the University of Washington. The competition supports graduate students’ capacity to effectively explain their research or capstone project in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a public audience. 

In front of a general audience and an esteemed panel of judges, graduate student presenters will each compete by doing a three-minute presentation for First Place, Runner Up, and People’s Choice awards. Audience members will get to vote for People’s Choice. This event is organized by The Graduate School’s Student Affairs office and the UW Libraries Research Commons.
