At the SISMEL’s General Assembly the first ZKS/Claudio Leonardi fellowship for doctoral research in Medieval Latin was to be granted. Unfortunately the lucky candidate Mrs. Hutton Sharp, Montreal, couldn’t assist in personam. Nevertheless, Jacqueline C Schindler, the ZKS Foundation’s president was present at the Convention and the General Assembly where she was given the opportunity to explain about the ZKS Foundation’s activities and find new cooperation possibilities between SISMEL and ZKS Foundation.
I conducted my Master Thesis between February 20th and August 17th 2012 in the Structures and Composite Materials Laboratory at McGill University, Montreal, Canada, under the supervision of Dr. Pascal Hubert (McGill) and Dr. Veronique Michaud (EPFL).
My Master Thesis is entitled “Out-of-Autoclave Manufacturing of Complex Shape Composite Laminates”. A specimen of my Master Thesis is attached to this letter to refurbish the ZKS Foundation’s personal library.
The defence of my Master Thesis took place three weeks ago and it went very well. I will graduate with a Master’s Degree in Material Science and Engineering on October 6th.
I had a great time in Montreal doing my Master Thesis at McGill University. And I would like to thank again the ZKS Foundation for the financial support.
We would like to thank Mr. Stadlin for allowing us to publish this letter and wish him all the best for his professional career be it academic or industrial.
The ZKS Foundation Board meeting will take place beginning of May. For details view official website http://www.zenokarlschindler-foundation.ch and read the conditions carefully.
