The National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) North Texas Meeting, held on June 4 at Discovery Park, was well attended by industry engineers and practitioners of Corrosion Science and Engineering.
Along with discussions of chapter business, the meeting included presentations by Jerome Edinger, Bass Engineering Company, and Jim Walton, Southern Cross Pipeline Integrity Services. Dr. Seifollah Nasrazadani, Professor and Associate Chair, Department of Engineering Technology, conducted a presentation on Corrosion Related Research Activities at UNT. He announced the establishment of the UNT chapter of NACE and discussed the various opportunities, such as sponsoring senior design projects, in which the attendees could partner with UNT researchers.
The DFW chapter of NACE recognized UNT as a partner in promoting Corrosion Prevention of Engineering Materials and offered a $5000 scholarship fund to the Department of Engineering Technology to promote Corrosion-related scholarly activities under the supervision of Dr. Nasrazadani. The UNT student chapter of NACE includes student members from Engineering Technology, Materials Science and Engineering, and Chemistry departments, and will sponsor a number events during the upcoming academic year. Interested students are encouraged to contact Dr. Nasrazadani (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information.
