Facilities

The department utilises lecture rooms on campus for its theory lectures. The practicals are conducted in four purpose-designed and dedicated non-destructive testing laboratories as follows:

– an electromagnetic testing laboratory for magnetic particle testing and eddy current testing. This laboratory also temporarily houses recently acquired fracture hardness testing equipment.

– an ultrasonic testing laboratory for conventional ultrasonic testing, phased array ultrasonic testing and time of flight diffraction. This laboratory is also used for visual and optical testing practicals.

– a liquid penetrant testing laboratory, which includes an in-line tank system.

– an x-ray bay, processing / dark-room and a viewing room for film radiographic testing

Pictures below shows students in a practical session in the ultrasonics laboratory.
