Nondestructive Testing

Program Features

Nondestructive Testing Program is a cooperative effort between the WATC 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.

Choose from an Associate of Applied Science, typically a 2-year program or a Technical Certificate, which is usually completed in a year or less. A Certificate of Completion option is also available to learn one specialized technique or discipline.
