Pflanz, recipient of Bert Krisher Scholarship

Ulrich Pflanz has received the 2011 MTI Bert Krisher Memorial Scholarship from The Materials Technology Institute (MTI). Pflanz recently earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Surface Technology and Materials Science at the Aalen University in Germany. The award was presented by MTI Board Members Robert Sinko of Eastman Chemicals and Paul Manning from Haynes International at NACE’s Corrosion 2011 Conference in Houston, Texas. The scholarship was established by MTI in 2008 in an effort to encourage students interested in Materials Science and Technology to pursue careers in the Chemical Process Industries (CPI). Pflanz is the first recipient from Europe in the four-year history of this award; his interest and experience in materials engineering as it relates to chemical process industries separated him as the winner from two other strong finalists. Currently working in the Corrosion Department of Aalen University as a Project Engineer, Pflanz intends to look for opportunities in the CPI or the oil and gas industry once he’s completed his master’s degree.
