Last Wednesday, Abderrazzak Mouslim presented his MASc thesis seminar, a talk titled “Fluid-to-fluid scaling for supercritical heat transfer”. Supervisor Dr. Stavros Tavoularis was in attendance. Thanks to both for the photo but my iPhone didn’t do so well with the tough lighting conditions! I’ll have to bring the big camera next time.

MCG undergrads win CSME award

Clara Phillips and Hallie Arnott attended the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME) National Design Competition on May 30th 2018, hosted by the CSME 2018 International Congress to present their Capstone design project in both poster and video format.

I am pleased to share that Clara and Hallie won the “Best Poster” award for their work on the “Design of a Low-Cost Transfemoral Prosthesis”  which was completed during their capstone design class along with colleagues Josha Bharadwa, Nicholas Di Ciero and Stavros Fotopoulos.

Congratulations Hallie and Clara!


Yousef Badripour presented his thesis Seminar

Earlier this week, MASc candidate Yousef Badripour presented his thesis seminar. The title of his talk was “Investigation of fraying in textile reinforcements for composites”. Supervisor Dr. Francois Robitaille also graced us with his presence, so I managed to get a photo without having to threaten to photoshop him into the photo. Thanks to both for an interesting seminar!

Justin Perry presented his thesis seminar

Yesterday, MASc candidate Justin Perry presented his thesis seminar titled “Pin fin array heat sinks by cold spray additive manufacturing: economics of powder recycling”. Supervisor Dr. Bertrand Jodoin was also present for the talk and the requisite photo. Thanks to Justin (and Dr. Jodoin) for an interesting talk! (And…bonus points because we managed to get Dr. Jodoin to crack a huge smile).

Jasmeet Singh Ladoiye presented his MASc thesis seminar

For the last seminar of winter 2018, Jasmeet Singh Ladoiye presented his MASc work at our MCG seminar series. Jasmeet’s talk was titled “control of surgical robot using model predictive control with time delay”. Unfortunately neither thesis supervisor (Drs. Dan Necsulescu and Jurek Sasiadek) could be in attendance. Congratulations Jasmeet on your seminar and on getting closer to completing your MASc! Thanks to everyone that participated in this semester’s seminar series. See you next semester!
