Tiered Course Indicator
An in-depth study of internal corrosion found in oil and gas wells, pipelines, refineries, process plants, and other industrial installations including the common forms of nondestructive testing, internal corrosion monitoring techniques, and chemical corrosion treatment methods. Rationale: A basic understanding of the types of corrosion found in the petroleum, petrochemical and chemical industries should enable a Corrosion Engineer to predict the most common types of corrosion his/her facilities will experience. This course will also provide the student with knowledge of the analytical methods needed to diagnose, treat, and monitor corrosion to reduce costs, protect the environment, and increase safety.
