CORROSION SCIENCE, 7.5 ECTS points
Final course plan
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 the Joint EUROCORR 2017 & 20th ICC & Process Safety Congress 2017. Most lecturers are part of KorrosionsCentrumTM (a collaboration between Swerea KIMAB and KTH) in Stockholm and most competent experts in their respective fields.

Course material: Selected chapters in “Corrosion Mechanisms in Theory and Practice”, 3rd edition, Ed. P. Marcus, CRS Press, Taylor & Francis Group, New York (2012). It is recommended, but not mandatory, to purchase the book in advance. In addition, lecture notes will be distributed by the lecturers.
Prerequisites: The participants are assumed to be graduate students at some university or researchers working in industry with a background in physics, chemistry or materials science. The introductory lecture covers necessary background information.
Course fee: to be announced by the conference organizers.
Examination: An individual project task must be completed within each of the topics of the course, and under supervision of the corresponding lecturer. The total amount of work of all tasks should be of the order of four weeks and should be completed by Dec 31, 2017.
