Teaching objective: 
Materials corrosion electrochemical fundamental is for the graduate students who have already mastered electrochemistry knowledge. The objective is to let students master the basic knowledge of materials corrosion and understand the protective techniques for corrosion, and then endow students with ability for engaging in the materials corrosion and protection in the future. The content includes: introduction of corrosion, thermodynamics of corrosion, dynamics of corrosion, hydrogen evolution corrosion and oxygen reduction corrosion, passivation of metals, corrosion in natural environment, localized corrosion, high temperature oxidation of metals, corrosion and protection technique.
