Courses

Corrosion and protection of metals + Laboratory Work

This introductory corrosion course aims at familiarizing the student with the mechanisms of corrosion, with various forms of corrosion and with the principles of protection against corrosion.

Surface analysis

The course treats the main surface analysis methods for the characterization of surfaces, interfaces and thin films. It discusses how these methods can be applied to gain specific knowledge about structural, chemical and functional properties of surfaces and thin films. Limitation to 18 students!

Tribology

This introductory course in tribology (science of friction, lubrication and wear) has specific goals : to present the basic principles of tribology, to develop the attitude to analyse tribological and to illustrate correlations between materials and tribological properties.

Electrochemistry in Corrosion Research

This course introduces the basic principles of electrochemistry, focusing on corrosion research. It covers the basics of corrosion testing and monitoring techniques, such as linear polarization, cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS).

CCMX Winter School - Surface Science: Fundamentals, Properties and Selected Applications

This course is designed to cover a series of important scientific aspects of surface science and to provide an in-depth review of their corresponding fundamentals. It is organised as a retreat over one week, with 9 modules consisting of presentations given by lecturers and the participants.

CCMX Tribology and Surfaces Interactions

This course is intended to give to the participants (graduates, researchers and industrial professionals) a solid background in tribology and surface interactions. It covers the fundamentals concepts of tribology including surfaces, contact mechanics, friction, lubrication and wear.
