Mr Haopeng YANG, a PhD student from the Department of Mechanical Engineering of PolyU, won the Best Presentation Award at the Fourth International Conference on Metallic Materials and Processing (ICMMP) on 20 June 2018.

ICMMP 2018 was organized by the Northwestern Polytechnical University. This conference aimed at bringing together world materials communities to discuss and review the recent development and progress in materials science, processing and computational materials with the focus on metals. Meanwhile, ICMMP helped to facilitate more fruitful cooperation among researchers, and to look into the future of metal research.

In this conference, 7 students and 5 full-time research fellows out of 58 participants were awarded the Best Presentation Award. Mr YANG’s awarded presentation was “Investigation on semi-solid forming of A356 alloy for fabrication of micro-scaled and fine-pitched pillar parts for semiconductor and microelectronics applications”.

Mr YANG is a 4th-year PhD student, under the joint supervision of Prof. Mingwang FU and Dr Sandy TO.  YANG is devoted to doing research into hot working material behaviors of Mg and Al alloys.
