Nondestructive Testing Program Features
The Nondestructive Testing (NDT) program is a cooperative effort between the WSU Tech and National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR). The associate degree program is a sequence of courses designed to produce a technician who understands NDT’s role in the aerospace industry, has mastered the American Society for Nondestructive Testing’s coursework for Levels I and II certification and has the depth and breadth of knowledge which comes from general education courses. In this program, students will complete Levels I and II ASNT competencies for six NDT methods including liquid penetrant, ultrasonic, eddy current, visual, radiography and magnetic particle inspection. In addition, the students will have hands-on experience in both conventional and composite aerospace assembly methods which will allow them to apply NDT techniques to the aviation industry.
