I am planning to pursue a master degree in corrosion studies, is there any body who could recommend a school in the US for me?

I would contact NACE, the National Assosication of Corrosion Engineers. They will know exactly where you can study a masters degree in the U.S.

If you go to www.nace.org you can get all the contact information.

Hope this is of some help.

You may want to check out the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette.  Dr. James Garber P.E. is head of the department and has a very good background and offers advanced studies in the field of Corrosion.

Hi there,
I have about the same question as the one that was there when I opened the site.
I'm a 25 year old Dutch girl and I also want to get a masters in corrosion inspection.I don't care much about where in the world( an english speaking country would be best I think ) but I don't really have the money to pay for it.
So, does anybody know about a study with a scholarship?
Thanks for your help

Hi,

I can recommend a great school here in Florida:  Florida Atlantic University.  I am attending here and can say that it's very nice.  There is a full Masters of Ocean Engineering program with a focus on Materials.  There is even an advisor here who has students doing nothing other than corrosion studies.

I am a corrosion engineer in Indonesia.

I am planning to pursue a master degree in corrosion studies, is there any body who could recommend a school in the US/UK and the organization/person who can grant me a scholarship for me?

The University of Manchester Inst of Science and Technology (UMIST) is a renowned school for corrosion in England.  I'm sure there are others.  Canada might be worth checking into as well because universities there are less costly and not as competitve as in the UK.  Univ. of Toronto, Univ of British Columbia and U of Alberta all have pretty good corrosion-related degree courses.
In the US you might qualify for research or teaching assitantships to defray the cost.  Good universities for corrosion include (in no special order) - Case Western University; Ohio State; Penn State; Univ. of Connecticut (Institute of Materials Science); MIT; Lehigh University;

An important consideration is the subject area you want to study - make sure that there is an obvious interest at the school in what you are interested in - for me biomaterials were important.  This can vary a lot depending on the professors' interests.  Some focus on high temperature corrosion, some on marine corrosion, some on exotic materials, etc.
The internet is a rich source for this type of information..

Good luck/veels geluk

Hey Rustbuster1

Do you know if UMIST are still doing their research into the anodized layer. Some really interesting research was being done in the 70's and 80's by Wood, Furneaux, Thompson, O'Sullivan et. al that helped a lot with my undergraduate thesis.
