Researchers’ Breakfast “Science and Cars” on 15 September at Tallinn University of Technology
The first event from the series Researchers’ Breakfast will take place at TUT on Monday, 15 of September, from 10.00 to 11.30. At the Researchers’ Breakfast the researchers of Tallinn University of Technology and their research will be introduced. This time Dr. Fabio Auriemma and Prof. Trieu Minh Vu from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering will introduce their work; the main topic is science and cars, i.e. researchers who investigate the dynamics and acoustics of cars in their research. The breakfast will be in English and will take place in the Mektory building (Raja 15, Tallinn).
This year there is a record number of new foreign students at TUT; Researchers' Breakfast will also provide more information to the students on the research carried out in various Departments of TUT. Anyone interested from other universities and journalists are also welcome. The event will be opened by Vice-Rector for Research Prof. Erkki Truve and moderated by Dean Prof. Tauno Otto.
The Formula Student Team Tallinn, who have just returned from Italy where they became the overall winner will also perform at the Breakfast. Namely, the latest technological possibilities of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering have been implemented in FS Team Tallinn formula racing cars. If the weather is fine, you will see the formula racing car driving, in case of rain you will see it in the garage.
Dr Trieu Minh Vu is a professor at the Department of Mechatronics at TUT; previously he has worked at RWTH Aachen University, Papua New Guinea University of Technology and Malaysia Universiti Teknologi Petronas. His research topics include mechatronics of vehicles, microcontrollers and practical robotics, robot systems and sensor technique, multibody systems dynamics, differential equations of machine mechanics, statics and kinematics, industrial technology, control engineering.
Dr Fabio Auriemma is a research scientist at the Chair of Automotive Engineering at TUT. Previously he has been employed as a consultant for engineering in the company FIAT Powertrain Technologies. His research topics include acoustics, mechanical engineering, control engineering, industrial technology, machine-building engineering, hydraulics, vacuum technology, vibroacoustic technology, noise reduction.
The event is opened by Vice Rector of Research Prof Erkki Truve. 1st Researchers' Breakfast is organised by Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and International Relations Office.
Please note that pre-registration is mandatory for this event. The registration is valid until 11th September.
