3MT is part of an effort to provide students with an opportunity to develop their oral communication and presentation skills.
The exercise develops academic, presentation and research communication skills, while developing research students' ability to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
3MT provides a valuable opportunity for research students to come together, get to know one another and talk about their research. It also provides a supportive environment in which Schools and Institutes can provide presentation skills training.
Memorial's 3MT winner may go on to represent their university at a national competition which, in itself, provides an excellent networking and professional development opportunity. Competitors will also benefit from raising the profile of their research accross the univeristy and the local community.
