The
The center, together with the international student cell, holds study days and seminars on SCE's two campuses that introduce students to the center's projects and main areas of corrosive studies. Students are offered membership in a number of leading international organizations, where the center's director is a senior member of the science and administrative committees.
The Corrosion Center continues to receive generous research grants from overseas, while developing scientific-industrial contacts in Israel and abroad, thus maintaining its position and as a recognized international research center.
