FARGO, ND - The Department of Coatings & Polymeric Materials at North Dakota State University is now accepting registrations for its annual short courses. The courses have been developed for all levels of industry, including industrial chemists, mechanical engineers, materials scientists, materials engineers and chemical engineers. Participants will be exposed to a wide range of practical information involving many combinations of materials.
The Fundamentals of Coatings Science Short Course is designed for all levels of scientists and technologists working in the field of coatings. For those relatively new to the field, the short course provides a comprehensive discussion of the basic principles of coatings science. For more experienced chemists, the short course may provide a broader perspective and more fundamental understanding of coatings science. The course will take place at North Dakota State University’s Research Technology Park, from June 6-11, 2010.
The Corrosion Protection by Coatings: Testing and Lifetime Prediction course will be a practical guide to the corrosion process, characterization of corrosion, corrosion protection by coatings and testing of coatings. This course will also focus on hands-on laboratory work. Participants are invited to bring their own samples for testing. The course will take place at North Dakota State University’s Research Technology Park, June 13-15, 2010.
