UH Cullen College of Engineering graduate students who took the SUBS 6349 Subsea Materials and Corrosion course wrapped up their spring 2019 semester with a field trip to Tenaris, a leading supplier of tubes and related services for the world’s energy industry and certain other industrial applications.

The tour was an interactive way to learn about materials, corrosion and other topics covered in the course, said Cullen College lecturer Yolanda De-Abreu. The students got an in-depth introduction to coil tubing, which is widely used in the oil and gas industry. Cliff West, maintenance coordinator at Tenaris, explained basic concepts of coil tube fabrication, microstructure-property relationships and testing.

“Students agreed that the tour went beyond their expectations and it was the best way to wrap up the course as they were able to see the industry application of what is taught in the classroom,” said Jonathan Penaranda, Cullen College teaching assistant.
