Corrosion and Reliability Engineering at the University of Akron

IF YOU WANT TO BE A LEADER in one of the fastest-growing industries where you will design materials for preserving industrial, infrastructure, defense and environmental assets around the world, becoming a corrosion engineer will put you on the right path to success.

About our degree

UA’s Corrosion Engineering program is the first of its kind in the United States.

Graduates of the program will earn a Bachelor of Science in Corrosion Engineering and will be prepared to reduce the costs of corrosion—estimated at more than $400 billion per year in the United States—and design structures for greater performance, safety and reliability. More.

What we do

Corrosion engineers research and develop methods to lower the environmental impact on roadways, bridges, power plants, windmills, manufacturing plants and pipelines.

Corrosion engineers also design new materials and structures that will address emerging needs in a variety of industries including energy, chemical processing and pharmaceuticals. More.

For future students

About the degree
Built on a traditional science-and-engineering base, our program offers a strong corrosion-specific core that includes management courses and practical experience in the field.

What does it take to get into our program?

Scholarships available
Thanks to the generosity of companies and foundations, a number of scholarships are available.
