The six-day Corrosion: Fundamentals and Experimental Methods course is geared to new corrosion pros and experienced specialists looking to refresh their knowledge.

Corrosion: Fundamentals and Experimental Methods will stretch over six days, with an opening reception Sunday, June 10, and course work June 11-15. The class will examine the basics of corrosion and how to measure and assess it, with sessions focused on specific methodology such as electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and scanning probe microscopy. Corrosion inhibitors and pitting will also be covered.

Experienced Instructors

Instructors for the week include:

  • Barbara Shaw, a Penn State professor of engineering science and mechanics who is a NACE fellow and is a past recipient of the NACE International H.H. Uhlig Educator Award;
  • Gerald Frankel, a professor of materials science and engineering at The Ohio State University, also a NACE fellow and recipient of the H. H. Uhlig Award; and
  • Rudolph Buchheit, also a professor of materials science and engineering at Ohio State, formerly of Sandia National Laboratories, who also received the H.H. Uhlig Educator Award from NACE.

The short course, held annually for more than 20 years at Penn State, comes at a cost of $2,850, which covers all materials, refreshment breaks, continental breakfast and lunch, as well as dinner one night and a reception. Online registration is open now and continues through May 31.
