Professional projects

The professional project is defined by a company, on a current issue, focusing on complex and innovating topics. Students benefit, during the one year programme, of an individual high level supervision from a senior scientist of CEMEF. They will have to use both their initial skills and the competences acquired during the programme to deal with a project in an industrial framework. The professional project leads to the writing of a report that shows the understanding of the project objectives, its global mastering (scientific and technical issues) and its capabilities to analyze the results.


Some examples  of professionnal projects :

CNIM : Optimization of electrom beam welding
Experimental and theoretical studies of carbon fiber damage in thermoplastic injection
DOW : Investigation of water based acrylic emulsions properties for the production of pressure sensitive adhesives by various coating processes
SIKA France :
Dispersion of Black carbon pellets in a newtonian matrix
SNECMA : Grain Boundary Engineering for Inconel 718
