The Deakin Corrosion Research Centre (DCRC) is a centre for research in corrosion engineering and surface sciences. Established in 2010 as the Deakin Corrosion Group, it is dedicated to a flexible approach towards research and development in a wide range of areas, including infrastructure durability, materials and alloy development, corrosion monitoring and prevention, biocorrosion, and coatings and inhibitors for surfaces and interfaces.

The Centre comprises researchers from both the School of Engineering and the Institute for Frontier Materials, spanning across two campuses in Waurn Ponds, Geelong and Burwood, Melbourne.



Corrosion research at Deakin University targets desalination and water infrastructure, oil and gas refining and production, defence and aerospace, mining and power industries.
