Material Science: Eddy Current Testing Certificate

This 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 eddy current inspection. Eddy current inspection applies electrical currents to an object to create electromagnetic fields. This type of testing can detect manufacturing defects and corrosion damage or cracking for many nonmagnetic metals and alloys.
