UA receives funding for corrosion lab equipment
UA was one of just eight Ohio universities and colleges to receive a portion of the $200,000 Dominion Foundation Higher Education Grant for 2014. The grants focus on programs that help prepare students for technical positions in Ohio's growing energy production and other industries.
Lori Kraft, an associate professor of general technology in the Department of Engineering and Science Technology, received $25,000 to purchase new corrosion laboratory equipment to provide hands-on training for students in the future Corrosion Technology program. Students in the program will have the opportunity to use the equipment and learn about corrosion testing applications.
