NACE Founding Malaysia Section

NACE International Founding Malaysia Section (FMS) was established back in March 1995 as part of the East Asia & Pacific Area. The efforts of our dedicated members have grown the section and it now conduct vibrant activities, such as conferences, seminar and educational courses. The section promotes corrosion awareness and technological development to public and private sectors. NACE FMS sponsors 2 Student Sections being Malaysia Student Section & Western Australia Student Section, with this it is aimed at encouraging the young building corrosion engineers to excel and fight against corrosion.
