Material Science: Ultrasonic Testing Certificate
Provides students with foundational knowledge related to nondestructive testing (NDT) and offers the opportunity to gain hands-on training in the NDT method of ultrasonic testing. With this method, NDT inspectors need access to only one side of a material. A transducer sends the ultrasound through the sample and the inner wall of a defect surface will send the wave bouncing back. Ultrasonic testing is a portable and efficient way to measure thickness, detect corrosion, and examine groove welds in many materials.
The certificate program is two to three quarters in length, depending on the time students need to satisfactorily complete all graduation requirements.
Prerequisites: Instructor permission and 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.
