The award recognizes outstanding young educators in postsecondary corrosion education who have effectively excited their students through outstanding and innovative teaching in corrosion engineering.

Castaneda-Lopez is also director of the National Corrosion and Materials Reliability Center at Texas A&M, where the focus is to develop the next-generation leaders in corrosion science and technology to work in various industries including energy, national defense, auto, healthcare, infrastructure and multiple government agencies.

“We work to bridge the gap between fundamental research (science) and technology (engineering),” Castaneda-Lopez said. “We serve as a world-class corrosion education and research center creating tomorrow's leaders in corrosion science and engineering.”

Castaneda-Lopez will receive the award in April at CORROSION 2018, the world’s largest corrosion conference and exposition.
