Setting up a new dynanmic web site for the Chair on Composites of High Performance (CCHP)

Professor : François Trochu
Project coordinator : Adrian Eftenie, undergraduate student
Participants : Vincent Achim, postdoc fellow
Élizabeth Michaud, undergraduate student


The Chair on Composites of High Performance (CCHP) is specialized in the fabrication of composite materials for applications in the automotive and aerospace sectors, in sports, boating, etc. During the summer of 2009 a complete renovation of the web site became necessary.

The objective of the web site is twofold:

  1. provide information on the research activities of the Chair, the current projects, services offered and facilites;
  2. connect the members of the Chair with the scientific community and the industrial partners.

For this purpose, the "Members" section has been enriched with information on the domains of activity of the research associates, students and trainees. The "Partners" and "Publications" section were updated and in the section "Contact Us", several maps have been added together with access information to the two locations of the Chair. In addition, a tab "You are" allows the various users of the web site (visitors, students and partners) to find more easily the pages of interest.

Many links between the web pages make the visit easy and dynamic. The programming of the site was completely redesigned, and coding reduced in order to facilitate future changes.
