Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is a technique for inspecting materials without causing harm to their future usability. It serves the vital purpose of uncovering imperfections while keeping the material’s original properties intact. In various industries, NDT plays a pivotal role in predicting the performance of components, ensuring structural integrity, and eliminating faulty parts. Professionals in NDT find opportunities in diverse sectors such as aerospace, manufacturing, theme parks, energy sectors, and more, opening doors to an array of career roles.
Our program collaborates with the American Society of Non-Destructive Testing (ASNT), a leading professional society renowned for setting industry standards in training, education, and inspection methods within the NDT sector. Students in our program have the privilege of obtaining ASNT certifications, recognized worldwide for their excellence and adherence to industry best practices.
Graduates of the Associate in Science in Aviation Maintenance Management degree have several career options, including general aviation maintenance, agricultural aviation maintenance, military aircraft repair and overhaul, transport or corporate aircraft maintenance and repair operation (MRO), and airline aircraft maintenance.
