Mission in France

Paris-Fronton

   In June 2014, I had the opportunity to travel to France to meet key people at the School and the Société des Anciens (la Soce).

Lille   I started by meeting the Heads of research of the 4 laboratories in the campus of Paris: Procédés et Ingénierie en Mécanique et Matériaux (PIMM), Dynamique des Fluides (DynFluid), Biomécanique (LBM), Conception de Produits et Innovation (LCPI), and the 3 laboratories in the campus of Lille: Electrotechnique et Electronique de puissance (L2EP), Ingénierie Numérique de Systèmes Mécaniques (LSIS-INSM), Mécanique (LML). Those conferences gave me the opportunity to become more familiar with their fields of researches, and be in a better position to facilitate further collaboration with local US partners (companiesand universities).

   I also had the chance to meet, in Metz, our long time partner, GeorgiaTech. The School is proud of the double degree ENSAM/GTA, the only one currently with an American university. After this focus on the faculty, I met the management team of the School and all directors, especially the ones I’m working with.

   While in France, I had the occasion to spend time with our Association at Iéna. I met the President, Jacques Paccard, and several VPs and discussed with them how, through my position, I could help to develop the image of Arts et Métiers in the US. Discussing with them, I emphasized how the relationship between School and Alumni is important, especially here in the US.
   I had the occasion to discuss with many great people, and realized that our school has changed a lot since I left in 2001. In particular the curriculum is now completely different than what it was, with a great focus on international and professional experience.

Gadz'Art Welcome in Berkeley


GadzB2   The Gadzarts at the University of California, Berkeley – current students and alumni - gathered on Labor Day to welcome the newbies and catch up with the oldies as a new semester begins. This year, three Gadz joined the ranks of UC Berkeley: Meyssane, William and Zied. In total, 11 people, whose years ran from 200 to 212, attended this barbecue under the California sun. It was a great opportunity to tip the new students about the university, to share experiences, and of course to have fun! We also celebrated the creation of the Gadz-Berkeley Association - more fancy names have been proposed, such as The Great Gadz-B or Tabagn’s of Berkel’s, but any other suggestions are welcome! More to come about the association soon…
