Corrosion Engineering - 30 April - 4 May 2018

Registration Fee


This is a five day postgraduate course on the causes of corrosion and the practice of corrosion control.  The emphasis will be to cover the basic theory of electrochemistry and oxidation as this is essential in the understanding of metallic corrosion.  The thermodynamic and kinetic aspects will be discussed together with metallurgical considerations.  Using this foundation the methods which can be used to reduce, control or even prevent corrosion will be described by internal and external lecturers.

30th April 2018 – 4th May 2018

Course Leader

Dr Mark Baker
Course Description


The course is intensive with 20 lectures as well as tutorials and a laboratory visit.  The knowledge gained during the course will be applied to components which have failed due to corrosion, and internationally known consultants will describe, from their own experience, real and important examples.

Hence the course combines academic knowledge with practical field experience.

Topics covered include: fundamentals of electrochemistry, temperature oxidation, marine and biological corrosion, and surface analysis.

Who should attend?

The course is directed at engineers and scientists who are, or expect to be, involved in any form of corrosion and corrosion control in research, design and failure analysis as well as the selection of metals and alloys.  It would also be useful for those in technical management or teaching who wish to update their appreciation of the subject.  

While open to all, the course is designed to be fully appreciated by registrants with a first degree in engineering or science, or who have equivalent experience.  It will be assumed that all delegates are familiar with the basic principles of chemistry.
