As Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) plays a vital role in ensuring the quality and reliability of industrial products, there is a constant demand for qualified NDT professionals in industries.
To meet this industrial demand, the Department offers M.Tech. (NDT) programme which is structured as in the Brunel University, UK. In this programme, students are taught with necessary theoretical inputs as well as with practical training in collaboration with NDT Lab and Welding Research Institute (WRI) of Bharath Heavy Electricals (BHEL), Tiruchirappalli (www.bheltry-spares.com). In this four semester programme, the first two semesters are designed for theory, practicals and field work. The third and fourth semesters are exclusively meant for carrying out project work in industries and various research institutions in the country like IISc, IGCAR, WRI , BHEL, HAL etc.
This programme is indeed a testimony for the interaction between Industry and Educational Institution. NITT enjoys the pride of offering this unique postgraduate programme in whole of the country for nearly two decades.
Recently the M.Tech (NDT) programme has been accredited by National Board of Accreditation (NBA) for 5 years from 2008.
