Biography :
Philippe Lours is Professor at Mines Albi. He is Vice-Director of the International Affairs at Mines Albi and Head of the International Master program AeroMat-Innovation in partnership with IMT Business School (Paris-Evry).
HDR of the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse, Philippe Lours is part of the board of the PhD School “Aeronautics & Astronautics” and was awarded the rank of “chevalier dans l’ordre des palmes académiques” in 2009.
Philippe Lours conducts research and teaching at IMT Mines Albi – University of Toulouse since 1995. He is also Invited Professor at ISAE – Supaéro (Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace – Supaéro), at the Université Paul Sabatier de Toulouse, at the University of Transports and Communications Hanoi (Vietnam). In june 2016, Philippe Lours has been appointed Adjunct-Professor by the University of Indonesia – Jakarta.
He has been lecturing in several universities over the world, including the University of California at Berkeley (1990), Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal (1993), Université Joseph Fourier Grenoble (1998), Toyohashi University of Technology – Japan (2002), Dalian Maritime University – China (2004), Universitatea Dunarea de Jos – Galati Romania (2000-2005), the University of Science & Technology Hanoi – USTH (2013), the Civil Aviation University of China – Tianjin (from 2013), Changwon National University – South Korea (from  2015), Institut Teknologi Bandung ITB Indonesia (2016), the University of Indonesia Jakarta (from 2017), Hanoi University of Science and Technology HUST (from 2017).
Graduated in Materials Science & Engineering and in Solid State Physics at INSA (Institut National des Sciences Appliquées – 1986), Philippe Lours defended his doctoral thesis on the plasticity of single crystalline nickel based superalloys investigated by In Situ Transmission Electron Microscopy in 1989 at Université Paul Sabatier – University of Toulouse. After a postdoctoral fellowhip at the Lawrence Berkeley Lab. (Berkeley, USA) where he further specialised in Transmission Electron Microscopy including High Resolution and High Voltage TEM, he has held several positions of R & D engineer, process engineer and project engineer in the metal alloys industry in Toulouse, France & Orangeburg, New York-USA (sputtering targets) and Montreal, Québec-Canada (shape memory alloys).
Full Professor at Mines Albi where he has successively founded the Master programs “Materials for Aeronautics & Space” in 2003, and “Advanced Materials & Mechanical Engineering” in 2010. He is now head of the newly launched International Master AeroMat-Innovation for which he established a partnership with IMT Business School in Paris-Evry. Author of 56 articles in international journals with peer review and book chapter, Philippe Lours has contributed to more than 70 national and international conferences. He is former director of the research team PUMMA (Enginering Properties & Microstructure of Advanced Materials) at Institut Clément Ader. Director, co-director or supervisor of about twenty PhD students, his research focusses on the relationship between the microstructure and the engineering properties of metallic materials and coatings with a particular attention on high temperature materials for aerospace applications (superalloys and thermal barrier coatings).
Early 2016, Prof. Philippe Lours has published “Au cœur des matériaux cristallins”, a textbook written in french for bachelor/master students in Materials Science & Mechanical Engineering, edited by “Les Presses des Mines” in both print (ISBN978-2-35671-370-4) and electronic (http://nte.mines-albi.fr/SciMat) formats and prefaced by Pr. André Pineau (https://www.pressesdesmines.com/produit/au-coeur-des-materieux-cristallins/). Writting of an enhanced  english version is in progress.
