Doctoral Course on Fibre-Reinforced Composites

The Materials Centre of MINES ParisTech invites postgraduate students from related fields of study to a doctoral course on fibre-reinforced composites in Paris. MINES ParisTech is a French "Grande Ecole", one of the most prestigiousacademic institutions in the country. These Autumn Lectures will be held from 25th to 27th October 2017.

The event will take place at FIAP Jean-Monnet in Paris. More details about the venue can be found under the tab Venue and Accomodation.



The Autumn Lectures are envisioned to give postgraduate students an overview of the state of the art regarding fibre-reinforced composites, their constituents, manufacture, applications and failure mechanisms. An aim of the lectures will be to broaden the knowledge of participants and to introduce them to a wider range of composites and related techniques than they may meet in their specific postgraduate studies. The students will be able to discuss issues related to fibre-reinforced composites characterization, failure processes and models, as well as other related topics with renowned composites experts from several European countries.

The lecturers will be: Prof. Alexander Bismarck (University of Vienna and Imperial College London), Prof. Anthony Bunsell (ParisTech), Dr. Peter Davies (IFREMER), Prof. Andrew Long (University of Nottingham), Prof. Véronique Michaud (Ecole Polytechnique de Lausanne) and Prof. Albert Turon (University of Girona).



All lectures will be given in English.


ECTS Credits

Upon successful completion of this postgraduate doctoral course, students can be awarded 3 credits according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). To include the credits in their university curriculum, participants need a permission of their home institution.

A certificate of attendance will be also awarded at the end of the programme.



This event is organized as part of the training network FiBreMoD (Fibre Break Models for Designing novel composite microstructures and applications). This project is funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Cure grant agreement No 722626. Within H2020-EU.1.3.1 the goal is to train a new generation of creative and innovative researchers, able to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for the economic and social benefits in the European Union.
