CORROSION SCIENCE, 7.5 ECTS points
Course plan and detailed information
General: The course is intended for graduate students or researchers working in academic or industrial environments with an interest in materials science and engineering.
Aim and contents: Corrosion is a truly interdisciplinary science and the aim is to discuss the underlying chemistry and physics of the most important forms of metal corrosion. Mechanistic as well as applied aspects will be dealt with.
Lectures: The course includes lecture hours on three consecutive days prior to EUROCORR 2017. Most lecturers are part of KorrosionsCentrumTM (a collaboration between Swerea KIMAB and KTH) in Stockholm and most competent experts in their respective fields.
