Phillipe Bertrand, deputy director of science and innovations at the National Engineering School of Saint Etienne, read a lecture to SUSU students about laser technologies in the production of 3D-functional items.
This topic was not chosen randomly. Over the course of several years SUSU students have been attending courses for specialist training in this field.
“One of our areas of collaborative work is research work as well as attracting students and postgraduate students to developments, research projects, and study of these processes with the goal of implementing it in the region’s businesses,” explains Marina Samodurova, head of national research center the SUSU Resource Center of Special Metallurgy
The lecture was of great interest to the audience and lead to many questions which the researcher was happy to answer.
“Around a year ago, as soon as I learned enough about 3D-printing, I already began to explore additive technologies for 3D-printing, as this is of interest to me. The lecture was very helpful for me in terms of my self-development,” said Kirill Malkov, part time student of the Engineering and Economics Faculty, expressing his feelings.
Phillipe Bertrand noted the high level of preparation among Russian students and SUSU teachers and rated the prospects of developing additive technologies.
“Of course, the prospects are quite high, because the technology is taking broad steps in European countries and the USA. As you saw in the presentation, they are replacing traditional technologies. The Russian market is also open for this. The Russian scientific community is quite interested in this, so the prospects are very high,” noted the French researcher.
Earlier, the researcher was invited to work as the head of the Laboratory of Mechanics, Laser Processes, and Digital Production Technologies.
