SJTU-ParisTech students visited SAIFEI
More than 80 students from SPEIT were warmly welcomed at SAIFEI manufacturing site with the introduction speech of Linda LIN (Deputy General Manager of SAIFEI). SAIFEI is a 49/51 joint venture between Safran Electrical & Power and Shanghai Aircraft Manufacturing Company (COMAC), which designs and produces aircraft wiring systems.
After, the students had the opportunity to attend a conference held by Philippe BIGOT (SAIFEI Chief Engineer), about "Electrical Wiring Interconnect System (EWIS)" and the "New technologies of the aerospace industry". During this conference, several themes were presented as:
- an introduction to the methods and processes used to develop and produce the EWIS for aircrafts,
- the different departments of a company involved in the process,
- the diverse current aerospace technologies in use
- and the new trends of the aerospace industry.
This section was more technical and interactive, with many Q&As, showing the great interest of the students on aerospace topics.
Following the conference, the students visited the production area of SAIFEI by doing a complete tour of the manufacturing plant. They learned how the wiring was produced, assembled and tested.
SJTU-ParisTech was built in 2012 from the strategic partnership between SJTU and the French Grandes Ecoles (Ecole Polytechnique, Mines ParisTech, Telecom ParisTech and ENSTA ParisTech.etc). Safran, being part of SJTU-ParisTech founding members, is very pleased and devoted to contribute to the students' education.
