The Material Science program will teach you how to analyze and evaluate the properties of materials or structure without causing damage. Because non-destructive testing does not impair the usefulness of the object being inspected, it is a valuable process that is used in fields such as construction, manufacturing, civil engineering, and transportation. Nondestructive testing techniques are used to examine structures or vehicles such as aircraft, trains, nuclear reactors, bridges, dams, and pipelines.
