Further study

I am intending to study NDT relevant major in US or Canada, but I can not find the NDT relevant major in university. Master programme is best, could you give me a hand? Thank you for your help.

To my knowledge there is no full fledged university course in Canada that offers NDT as a major or minor. Most Canadian Engineering faculties offer a major/minor in Metallurgical or Material Properties that may include miniscule amounts of NDT theory.

There are several Uni's in the USA and Great Britain that run NDT majors.

www.cnde.iastate.edu is a good starting point.

Hi, David, you are right, originally my mojor is Corrosion and Pretection. Do you know anything about this major in US and Canada or any other university?

From my own experience, most schools will have at least one professor and/or group that does NDT, but it's not necessarily labelled as such. For example, I was part of the Applied Magnetics Group at Queen's University, in the Physics Department, and my grad school work centred around magnetic flux leakage and remote field eddy current NDT.

So, your best bet may be to do a sort of reverse search for schools by searching on your interests in NDT (e.g. aspect or technique), and following the name trail that you come up with. Most searches on Google for a specific NDT technique for example will eventually return a link to a professor or research group's website, and from there you can check out the research and the school itself.

Good Luck!

Chris

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
