Corrosion and Protection

The course 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.
