Seven students from the Institute for Corrosion have summer internships with sponsor or
affiliate companies. They are:
At the ICMT, we take pride in the diversity of our connections around the globe. This summer, we have been fortunate to be
able to provide interns for companies who do research in the field of corrosion and have been able to accept interns and
summer students who want to learn more about the mechanisms of CO2 corrosion as well. For the next few months,
our students will be located in Ohio, Oklahoma, and Texas and overseas in France or in Italy, while we have accepted
interns to work at the Institute internationally from France and Malaysia, and locally from Ohio. We expect that all
involved will learn greatly from their experiences in alternate locations and bring new insights back to their research.
New Student Interns
The Institute has also recieved three other student interns that will be working on different projects within the institute.
Pat Fahey an Ohio University student, will be working on a review of iron carbonate precipitation kinetics using a newly
acquired quartz crystal microbalance. Yagnesh Mulji (specialty: material science) will stay in Athens for 12 months and work
for The Top of the Line Corrosion project. Benoit Bouverne (specialty: heat transfer) was assigned to the Naphthenic Acid
project and will remain with us for 3 months. Both Yagnesh and Benoit are from the EPUN (Ecole Polytechnoque Universite de
Nantes) in France.
