École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS)
Location: Montréal, Quebec, Canada
École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) is a public engineering school in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Founded in 1974, ÉTS is part of the Université du Québec network. ÉTS is located in the downtown of Montreal and enjoys its modern facilities with the historic heritage of the Griffintown neighborhoods.
This research project aims at developing acoustical reference designs and mechanical mounting guidelines for a new type of acoustical flow-sensing velocity microphone designed by a local start-up company. Multi-physics models developed using COMSOL, as well as experimental measurements with specialized acoustical equipment such as intensity probes or airflow source, will be used to characterize the performance of various designs and assemblies. A MITACS internship with the partner company, Soundskrit Inc, will give the student hand-on experience with consumer electronic product design and optimization.
This project will be fully funded with an annual scholarship provided by Canadian MITACS-Accelerate internships program. Consulting mandates by the partner company might be offered within the time limits of the Canadian student study permit (when applicable).
Training in Acoustics, interest in Physics, hands-on experience with measurements, and passion for applied research.
Soundskrit is a funded deep-tech start-up company based in Montreal, Canada. Leveraging years of research in bio-inspired acoustic transducers, Soundskrit is developing directional MEMS microphones for the consumer electronics industry, enabling better sound capture in noisy and reverberant environement using a unique flow-sensing technology recently developped..
