Appendix A
Corrosion Education Workshop Statement of Task

A Type 4 workshop will be convened to consider scientific and technical issues pertinent to the development of effective corrosion education of engineering students.

The Corrosion Education Workshop will be organized by an appointed planning group that will develop an agenda with the goal of discussing fundamental questions that will need to be addressed in any future assessment of the capability of U.S. engineering curricula to educate undergraduate students in corrosion identification and abatement.

The Corrosion Education Workshop will bring together corrosion specialists with materials and mechanical engineering educational leaders. The workshop participants will feature invited presentations and discussion to provide perspectives on whether corrosion abatement is adequately addressed in our nation’s engineering curricula and, if not, what needs to be added to develop a comprehensive corrosion curriculum in undergraduate engineering.

The workshop activity will result in a proceedings, which will consist solely of the individually authored extended abstracts from the workshop’s speakers.
