The complete masters (MSc) course 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.
You can choose to study for a postgraduate qualification ( MSc, PG Diploma, PG Certificate ) or you can choose individual units as part of your Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Additionally, you can choose to build up the individual units to lead to a postgraduate qualification.
You can complete the programme in the following formats:
- Campus-based - Full-time and Part-time format
- Online Distance-learning (Part-time)
Aims of the programme:
- to produce competent, professionally qualified graduates who are appropriately trained to secure immediate, rewarding and useful employment in the UK, European or overseas industries as corrosion scientists or engineers
- to provide conversion training, which is academically-based and intellectually challenging, as well as directly relevant to the requirements of the subject, the student, industry and other employers.
- to satisfy the needs of practicing engineers, scientists and technologists wishing to develop professional competence in the areas of corrosion and corrosion control processes.
Module details The complete MSc course is made up of six taught course units and a research project. The taught units are:
- Corrosion and Materials
- Principles of Corrosion
- Environments, Testing and Localised Corrosion
- Corrosion Control Methods
- Corrosion in the Oil and Gas Industries
- Corrosion Mechanisms and Control in the Process and Power Industries
Academic entry qualification:
You will need a UK 2.2 Honours degree in a Science, Engineering or Technology field, or equivalent International degree.
If you do not meet the minimum requirements and / or have a mix of other postgraduate or professional qualifications and relevant work experience, then your application will be considered for the progressive entry route, which means that you will be registered for the Certificate or Diploma level and you will be assessed at the end of each level before you progress to the next stage.
English language requirements:
If English is not your first language, you will need to take and meet minimum requirements for the following recognised English language qualifications: IELTS (6.5 with no sub-test under 5.5); TOEFL (570 with 5.0 in TWE); CBTOEFL (230 with 5.0 in TWE).
