Confused!!!!!

Dear All,

I have just given my final year exams of B.E Mechanical Engineering from Mumbai University. I want to pursue my career in NDT. I have a lot of doubts and queries regarding the path, some of them are :

1) Should I do Msc In NDT. If yes, from where? UK, Germany or India?

2) Before doing Msc should I first have some practical experience,where can I join in Mumbai for this experience!

3) When should I go about the NDT Level Certification?

I know m a very inquisitive guy, but please HELP!

Dear Priyesh,

As an engineer, you would get a job as a trainee / apprentice in a manufacturing organization / pressure vessel fabrication shop etc. Try to get placed and work for a few years before you think of spending money on Level II / III certification.

If you want to pursue MS in NDT think of joining IIT, Bombay or IIT, Madras in India or go abroad (US, UK, Germany, France....). But before that be clear what you want to do - MS and PhD makes sense only if you want to pursue a career in teaching, R&D etc.

Shop floor NDT does not need more than BE or ME / M.Tech and NDT Certification as Level II and III (at very senior positions).

Best wishes.

NIIT Trichy has a M.Tech NDT Course., Selection Process is through the GATE Exam., check their website for more details and deadlines.

It doesnt matter, you gain experience and then Study or First complete the Study and then gain the Experience.

Why because, when you look back after some 5 years, you will have both Knowledge, Qualification and experience. Good Luck.
