UMIST is currently developing a series of online courses on corrosion and corrosion control. These will have the same course structure as, and will be interchangeable with, the existing residential courses in the Modular MSc in Corrosion Control Engineering.

The first course is an Introduction to Corrosion and its Control, which has the same content as Module C0. This course is partially supported by the European Union through the Mentor-C project. The online course was beta-tested (i.e. run with a selected group of students) in early 2003. As a result, some modifications have been made to the course, and it is next scheduled to run in the first part of 2004.

The course provides full tutor support, with an allocation of 10 h of tutoring time over the 10 weeks of the course. Contact with tutors will primarily be by way of online chat and e-mail, although telephone contact is also possible.

There will be an online test at the end of the course, and students who are successful in the test, and who also complete a set of required assignments successfully, will be awarded a certificate of completion. This certificate will be accepted as a component of the requirements for admission to both the residential and online MSc course modules.

The fee for this module is currently £400. This includes full tutor support and a pack of supporting materials. The number of places is strictly limited, and admission will be based on the date of submission of the application form, subject to payment of the fee before the commencement of the course. The registration form is available at: www2.umist.ac.uk/corrosion/module0/default.htm, and can be submitted by Fax or e-mail of a scanned image (UMIST requires a “human” signature on the form).

Prospective students and others who wish to be kept informed of future courses can complete an Expression of Interest form at the Web site: www2.umist.ac.uk/corrosion/module0/default.htm
