Trinity Students win at the 31st International Manufacturing Conference
22 Sep 2014
The 31st International Manufacturing Conference took place at Cork Institute of Technology on the 4th and 5th September 2014. Trinity College was well-represented at this conference with TCD students bringing home two prizes: first place and runner up.
Recent graduate from the MAI taught masters program, Harry Mitrogiannopoulos, won the overall prize for best oral presentation entitled 'Microstructure and Micro Hardness of Friction Stir Welded AA2024-T3 Joints'. Harry's research work, supervised by Prof Shaun McFadden, was completed as the research project component for the MAI award. Commenting on this achievement, Prof McFadden said "it is particularly important to note that Harry's research was completed as part of a new taught masters program in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at TCD. Compared to other research programs, the time to complete this MAI project is quite constrained and this deserves a special mention."
Morton Meyer and Harry Mitrogiannopoulos
PhD graduate student within the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at TCD, Mr Morton Meyer, under the supervision of Prof Rocco Lupoi, received a runner up prize for his oral presentation entitled 'Computational Prediction of Cold Spray Nozzle Performance for the Deposition of Titanium'.
