On January 18 and January 22, 2018, two doctoral defenses were held in Université de Lorraine, France. Huang Qun and Yang Jie, two PhD graduates in solid mechanics from our school, successfully passed the defenses. After receiving doctoral degrees from Wuhan University in June 2017, they further obtained doctorates in engineering from Université de Lorraine. The two doctoral dissertations are entitled “Multi-scale modeling and simulation on buckling and wrinkling phenomena” and “Solving Partial Differential Equations by Taylor Meshless Method”, respectively. The defense committee highly appraised the doctoral theses and expressed appreciations and congratulations on the research results they have obtained.

Dr. Huang and Dr. Yang had started to pursue their doctoral degrees under the supervision of Prof. Hu Heng since 2012. Funded by “Program Caiyuanpei” hosted by Prof. Hu Heng from Wuhan University and Professor Michel Potier-Ferry from Université de Lorraine, both Dr. Huang and Dr. Yang went to Laboratoire LEM3, France for academic exchange during 2014 and 2016.

Dr. Huang and Dr. Yang have achieved fruitful research results during their doctoral studies. The successful graduation of Dr. Huang and Dr. Yang signifies a remarkable achievement in the international academic exchange of our school. Congratulations to them!
