Material Science: Radiographic Testing Certificate
Provides foundational knowledge related to nondestructive testing (NDT) and offers the opportunity to gain hands-on training in the NDT method of radiographic inspection. Radiography uses x-rays or gamma rays to show defects which might otherwise be invisible. A vast array of material can be examined in this efficient and reliable way, ranging from tiny electronic components to 20-foot freestanding concrete slabs.
The certificate program is two to three quarters in length, depending on the time students need to satisfactorily complete all graduation requirements.
Prerequisites: COMPASS Reading 68 and Writing 33, or successful completion of ENG 82, and successful completion of MAT 82 by the end of the first quarter of the program or Instructor approval.
