Easter Newsletter


Company News

TotalSim would like to take the opportunity to wish you all a very happy Easter and update you on things at TotalSim.

New Recruits

TotalSim have continued their recruitment into 2014 with a few new faces.  Koen Van Mierlo has joined us from Southampton Uni.  He is just wrapping up his PhD in Detached Eddy Simulation (DES) and aeroacoustic modelling of aircraft landing gear. He should be a great addition to the team in Brackley.

We also have Richard who has joined as a graduate from Loughborough University with a Masters in Aeronautical Engineering.  Finally, we have 3 students working with us with either internships or thesis projects.

Sadly we have two faces that are returning back to Academia. Flo is going back to uni to do a Masters and Dan who is returning to Southampton to finish his PhD thesis.  Hopefully they will both be returning when their studies have been completed.
