The masters programme in Corrosion Control Engineering provides you with a thorough grounding in corrosion and its control. You will explore principles, protection strategies, and industrial applications, preparing you for either a career in industry as a corrosion scientist or engineer, or for cutting-edge academic research.
The programme The complete MSc programme is made up of taught course units and a dissertation project (MSc) or short project (Diploma). The taught component is delivered through a combination of lectures, supported learning, tutorials, case studies and practical laboratory classes. The course units, assessed by a combination of coursework and examination, cover a wide range of industrially-relevant subject areas, including:
Corrosion in the Oil and Gas Industries Cathodic Protection Corrosion Control through Materials Selection and Surface Engineering
Your dissertation is a chance to apply what you have learned to a focused five-month research project. Your choice of topic will be determined in consultation with your supervisor and will be industrially linked – empowering you with skills that can be applied to the real world.
