Akron: Leading the way
UA’s Corrosion Engineering program is the first of its kind in the United States. Corrosion engineering students will:
- Participate in coursework, laboratory activities and cooperative education (co-op) work assignments with companies from many different industry sectors and government agencies.
- Focus their studies at the intersection of engineering, science, and management.
- Work with multiple engineering disciplines including chemical, mechanical, civil, environmental and electrical.
- Have the opportunity to study and/or work abroad.
The University of Akron is the first university in the United States to offer a Bachelor of Science degree in Corrosion Engineering. The University of Akron is planning to expand the program to include an interdisciplinary Ph.D. and M.S. degree(s) in the future.
Housed within the department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, the BS in Corrosion Engineering represents a unique blending of multi-disciplinary courses. Building on the traditional science and engineering foundation and a strong corrosion-specific core, this curriculum also integrates a unique set of management courses and co-op experiences that will prepare our graduates to immediately enter the workforce as contributing members of project teams.
