AIE was recently invited by the American University of Sharjah (AUS) to deliver two lectures on Corrosion Management to students enrolled in the ‘Corrosion’ course at the university.
The first lecture was delivered by AIE’s Principal Corrosion Engineer while the other was presented by a young Chemical Engineer, an AUS Alumnus of Class Spring 2017.
The scope of the first lecture revolved around the different types of corrosion typically faced in the Oil & Gas industry and what measures are taken to mitigate and monitor these corrosion related threats. The second lecture, delivered by the AUS Alumnus, provided students an insight on Corrosion Management System Elements and why each element is important to the success of a Corrosion Management System. The students were also engaged in a team-oriented interactive case study for them to better understand how each element contributes to a Corrosion Management System.
These sessions provided an opportunity for graduating students to establish realistic expectations related to employment, the work environment and career path development into Corrosion Engineering.
AIE are a major supporter of the American University Sharjah programs and have employed several graduates previously who have already excelled themselves within the industry.
