Nondestructive testing is the examination of an object or material in a manner which does not affect its future usefulness. Career opportunities exist in the aircraft, construction and manufacturing industries. Students study the theory of each NDT method and spend much of their time working in a fully equipped lab. They receive hands-on training on X-ray, radiography, isotope radiography, ultrasonics, computer-based eddy current, computerized acoustic emission and real-time x-ray equipment. This program is recognized by the American Society for Nondestructive Testing as one of the leading college programs in the country. Certificate options are also available within this program.
