A materials research program was established to identify new corrosion resistant stainless steel alloys for the oil and gas industry. One important goal of this work was developing professionals to address the critical materials issues in the Arabian Gulf Region. This chapter reports the results of these efforts. Development of research professionals involved a multifaceted approach. One key element involved laboratory work to develop the critical research tools required in this area. The effort also included development of important course content for both undergraduate and graduate-level materials education. The research in this program stems from a collaboration between Texas A&M University at Qatar and the Colorado School of Mines. Collaboration provided many of the important tools required for this new Middle Eastern education initiative. The present chapter describes the challenges that were addressed in order to develop crucial new materials research and education capabilities in this major petroleum producing region.
