The MSc in Corrosion Control Engineering provides you with a thorough training in corrosion and its control. Initially, you will study the fundamental chemistry, physics, and metallurgy underpinning corrosion processes. Subsequently, you will learn about approaches to corrosion control, ranging from material selection, through cathodic protection, to corrosion inhibition and protective coatings. Finally, you will cover industrial scenarios where knowledge of corrosion and its control is paramount, e.g. oil production. This MSc is the ideal preparation for a career either in industry as a corrosion scientist or engineer, or for cutting-edge academic research.
Aims of the course:
- To produce competent, professionally qualified graduates who are appropriately trained and will secure immediate, rewarding and useful employment in UK, European or overseas industries as corrosion scientists or engineers.
- To provide conversion training, which is intellectually challenging, as well as being industrially relevant.
- To satisfy the needs of practising engineers, scientists and technologists wishing to develop professional competence in the areas of corrosion and corrosion control methods.
