Comments about Corrosion Control Engineering MSc - At the institution - Manchester - Greater Manchester
Career opportunities The career paths of our graduates are extremely broad, with the majority going on to fill key posts as corrosion scientists, engineers, managers and consultants in academia, industry, consultancy and research and development.
Entry requirements: MSc qualification: You will need a UK 2.2 Honours degree in a Science, Engineering or Technology field, or equivalent International degree. If you do not meet the minimum requirements and / or have a mix of other postgraduate or professional qualifications and relevant work experience, then your application will be considered for the progressive entry route, which means that you will be registered for the Certificate or Diploma level and you will be assessed at the end of each level before you progress to the next stage. Diploma and Certificate qualification:For the Diploma and Certificate qualifications we will consider your application on an individual basis. You can apply with a mix of UK Honours degree or equivalent international qualification, professional qualifications and postgraduate work experience.
MSc; Diploma; Certificate Corrosion Control Engineering
The Corrosion Control Engineering programme provides you with a thorough grounding in corrosion and its control. You will explore principles, protection strategies, and industrial applications, preparing you for either a career in industry as a corrosion scientist or engineer, or for cutting-edge academic research.
The complete MSc programme is made up of taught course units and a dissertation project (MSc) or short project (Diploma). The taught component is delivered through a combination of lectures, supported learning, tutorials, case studies and practical laboratory classes. The course units, assessed by a combination of coursework and examination, cover a wide range of industrially-relevant subject areas, including:
Corrosion in the Oil and Gas Industries
Corrosion Control through Materials Selection and Surface Engineering
Your dissertation is a chance to apply what you have learned to a focused five-month research project. Your choice of topic will be determined in consultation with your supervisor and will be industrially linked - empowering you with skills that can be applied to the real world.
Each unit is taught over a period of two weeks and will comprise 100 study hours. In most cases, this will include 20-30 hours of lectures plus 20-30 hours of supported learning/tutorials. The taught units are arranged within the two semesters before and after Christmas with appropriate breaks for revision periods and examinations. Following a satisfactory assessment the summer period (April to September) is devoted entirely to industrially linked project work culminating in the submission of a dissertation in mid-September. All units are compulsory and typically include: Engineering Materials for Corrosion Applications; Principles of Corrosion; Localized and Mechanical Aspects of Corrosion; Corrosion in Natural and Industrial Environments; Corrosion Control by Materials Selection and Surface Engineering; Corrosion Control in the Oil and Gas Industries; Corrosion Control in the Process and Power Industries; Corrosion Control by Cathodic Protection, Organic Coatings and Inhibitors; Corrosion of Light Alloys and its Control.
