Professor Brian G. Falzon has been invited by the Rector of the Moscow Aviation Institute, Mr. Mikhail Pogasyan, to deliver a seminar in November 2016 and to promote the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Queen’s University Belfast for future research collaboration and staff/student exchange.
Professor Gianluca Cicala from the University of Catania (Italy) visited us in October 2016 as part of a collaboration between our respective groups. Professor Cicala has extensive experience in the development of novel production processes for composites, polymeric blends, eco-composites, auxetics and material characterisation.
Xudan Yao presented her latest results at the 17th European Conference on Composite Materials (ECCM-17) that was held in Munich (Germany) on 26-30 June 2016.
Professor Brian G. Falzon was awarded the Postgraduate Research Supervisory Excellence Award by QUB’s Graduate School, based on nominations received from a number of his international PhD researchers.
Xudan Yao got awarded the 3rd place in the Sir Bernhard Crossland poster competition 2016. She is a PhD student in the Advanced Composites Research Group at the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of the Queen’s University Belfast, and her PhD project is closely related to the MACANTA project. Congratulations Xudan!
