What is 3MT®?
Now in its fourth year at Microwave Week, the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition is designed for eligible students and young professionals, who indicated upon submission of a paper their desire to enter the competition and whose paper is accepted for either oral or interactive forum presentation.
The 3MT® contestants will make a presentation of three minutes or less, supported only by one static slide, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
The Microwave Week 2020 3MT® Competition is designed to stimulate interest in the wide range of applications of microwave technology. Such information would help renew public interest in microwaves as a transformative technology that is rewarding both to those who study it, and to those whose daily lives benefit from incorporation of scientific developments in consumer products.
