Corrosion Science and Engineering - Certificate
The Certificate in Corrosion Science and Engineering requires completion of five courses (15 credit hours).
Designed in response to industry demand and the national need in strategic sectors, such as infrastructure renewal, energy (extraction, conversion and transportation), utilities (in particular water), transportation, production and manufacturing.
The curriculum incorporates:
- cross-disciplinary components on materials science and engineering, thermodynamics, kinetics, and electrochemistry;
- interdisciplinary, integrative courses on the forms of corrosion, the electrochemical and degradation processes in extreme environments, and the control and mitigation strategies to prevent these processes in specific environments; and
- elective courses related to different engineering disciplines and applications as well as professional internships in industry and national laboratories.
The goals of the corrosion science and engineering certificate program are to train the next generation of scientists and engineers:
- who will serve as a trained, advanced workforce for industry, academia, and government agencies with a basic understanding of environmental degradation assets required to optimize asset life cycle, production efficiency, and worker safety;
- are familiar with the technological and computational tools and methods for corrosion and material degradation evaluation, inspection, detection, and prevention;
- have interdisciplinary collaborative experience in materials preservation and degradation, with individuals from different science and engineering disciplines;
- contribute to interdisciplinary efforts while developing a comprehensive understanding of the potentials and limitations of corrosion science and engineering; and
- acquire skills necessary to thrive in their chosen career path.
