Ecole Polytechnique and McGill are seeking two PhD candidates for a large project aiming at understanding the effects of shot peening on the fatigue lives of aerospace components. The project involves 8 PhD students that will be working in close collaboration. The project is co-funded by the Canadian goverment and 5 leading aerospace companies located in Montréal. Some projects involve internships at these companies.

We are seeking two students for the following projects:


  1. Fatigue live prediction of Nickel superalloys submitted to shot peening (materials/metallurgy engineering background preferred, but mechanical engineering candidates can be considered as well)
  2. High strain rate behaviour of metal allows subjected to shot peenint (mechanical engineering background preferred, but materials/metallurgy engineering will be considered as well).
