Alumni day 2012
In spring we also arranged a Division Alumni day where some alumni presented their activities. This item of the programme was very much appreciated partly because the PhD-students had the opportunity to be inspired by different career paths after graduation. During the Alumni day the Fluid laboratory for the students was also inaugurated under the name Allan Holmgren's water laboratory or simply Allans lab. There will be a new Alumni day in spring 2013.
In autumn 2012, the department will work with strategies regarding research, financing of research, teaching and experimental and numerical infrastructures to further exploit the symbiosis that exists between subjects Experimental Mechanics and Fluid Mechanics. Research funding offers many opportunities and it is important to match these with the strategies for the subjects, the department and the university. There is also a trend that the number of students choosing the courses taught by the division is increasing, which is fun and challenging. Autumn will pose a number of conferences licentiate seminars and a pair of PhD-thesis defences as well as a lot of other activities mostly in the form of research and teaching.
