UA has launched the nation’s first baccalaureate program in corrosion engineering. The program incorporates a multidisciplinary curriculum to train students to understand the origins of corrosion and manage its effects.
Corrosion engineering requires a broad knowledge and cuts across many disciplines. Students receive instruction in:
- chemical engineering
- mechanical engineering
- civil engineering
- electrical engineering
Along with a multidisciplinary approach that emphasizes strong science and engineering principles, the program integrates a strong management component to help our students develop the skills that are necessary for executing "real world" projects.
- incorporate real engineering design challenges into courses
- collaborate on research with students and colleagues at UA, other schools, government agencies and private industries
Experience corrosion engineering firsthand through the research facilities available in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering:
- six state-of-the-art research laboratories
- computer lab
- applied colloid and surface science lab
- catalysis research lab
- multiphase and solids processing lab
- supercritical fluid lab
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.
Engineering Student Organizations
Interact with other engineering students and professionals in the field through organizations such as:
- Tau Beta Pi (engineering honorary)
- Women in Engineering
- National Society of Black Engineers
- American Institute of Chemical Engineers
- International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers
