UA has launched the nation’s first baccalaureate program in corrosion engineering. The Corrosion Engineering program of The University of Akron incorporates a multidisciplinary curriculum to train students to understand the origins of corrosion and manage its effects.


Corrosion Engineering Fundamentals

Corrosion engineering requires a broad knowledge and cuts across many disciplines. Students receive instruction in:

  • chemical engineering
  • mechanical engineering
  • civil engineering
  • electrical engineering
  • physics
  • modeling

Professional Preparation

Along with a multidisciplinary approach that emphasizes strong science and engineering principles, the Corrosion Engineering program of The University of Akron integrates a strong management component to help our students develop the skills that are necessary for executing "real world" projects.

Our faculty

  • incorporate real engineering design challenges into courses
  • collaborate on research with students and colleagues at UA, other schools, government agencies and private industries

Career Outlook

In a 2009 report titled Assessment of Corrosion Education, the Committee on Assessing Corrosion Education of the National Research Council stated that an essential element in developing improved corrosion control and management practices throughout the national infrastructure is better education of the nation's engineers.

It further noted that advances in durability, and the savings that accrue thereby, are more likely to be realized with an engineering workforce that is capable of understanding the fundamental principles of corrosion science and applying them using engineering techniques.

Real World Experience

Gain important practical professional experience through the optional cooperative education program in the engineering field of your choice. Through co-op, you’ll alternate semesters of work and school following your sophomore year. As an added benefit, you’ll earn a competitive salary.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Analytic Geometry-Calculus
  • Tools for Corrosion Engineering
  • Material and Energy Balances for Corrosion Engineers
  • Equilibrium Thermodynamics
  • Ordinary Differential Equations
  • Aqueous Corrosion
