About this Program

This program prepares individuals to inspect and monitor the quality of metallic and nonmetallic production materials. Nondestructive tests are performed to detect internal or external imperfections, to determine structure, composition, or properties, or to measure geometric characteristics without affecting the form, fit, or function of the test object or material. The student will be trained in the laboratory using major equipment. The lab is also equipped with computerized ultrasonic, eddy current, acoustic emission and x-ray equipment, along with metallurgical and mechanical testing equipment.
