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!

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).

For the last seminar of winter 2018, Jasmeet Singh Ladoiye presented his MASc work at our MCG seminar series.
