AIE’s Principal Corrosion Engineer, was invited by the American University of Sharjah (AUS) to deliver an educational session to the senior year Chemical Engineering students on 10th December, 2015.
Our Principal Corrosion Engineer lectured on “Materials Selection for High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) Oil and Gas Pipelines” for a corrosion course at AUS. Different corrosion threats in HPHT pipelines, and choosing the right materials at the design stage to mitigate these threats were discussed during the seminar.
The seminar was well received by the students and was followed by a Q&A session in which the students participated actively.
Our Principal Corrosion Engineer personal thoughts after the lecture were: “The students were well educated and informed about the topic which made delivering the presentation much more enjoyable. The audience seemed very interested and enthusiastic about the topic as lots of questions were asked.”
Dr. Taleb Ibrahim, professor of the corrosion course at AUS, asked the attendees to provide feedback of the lecture, and one of the students wrote: “The presentation was overall educational. There was not a deluge of information, and all that was shown was relevant and succinct. The Lecturer himself was also well spoken, making himself clear at all times. He was also ready and willing to answer any questions we had. Moreover, he was able to keep the presentation interesting through his comedic remarks and anecdotes that imparted practical advice.”
Another remark read: “The workshop was very beneficial. I gained lots of valuable new knowledge from it and it helped me see how the principles we learn in class are applied in the industry.”
