Ninety-four percent of SCC's 2012-2013 graduates found work or continued their education. Placement Nondestructive Testing Technology Featured Videos WelcomeSCC's Nondestructive Testing Technology program prepares students for exciting careers in the testing and examination industry. In its simplest form, NDT is the examination of a part without destroying its usefulness. NDT has applications to a wealth of industries.OverviewSCC’s Nondestructive Testing Technology program prepares students for careers in product testing, consulting, and inspection careers in engineering and quality assurance areas of industry. NDT graduates use non-invasive inspection methods such as ultrasound, radiography and many other inspection techniques to look inside a component or structure to determine if the component is acceptable for use or service. NDT is used both as a service as well as being an integral part of manufacturing in many different industries such as aircraft and aerospace, power generation, chemical and petrochemical, bridge and building fabrication/erection, independent testing laboratories, electronics and microelectronics, civilian defense and enlisted military, general manufacturing companies, historical renovation, infrastructure construction and maintenance, automotive, rail, marine, and large ship construction.MissionThe mission of the Nondestructive Testing Technology program is to prepare individuals for employment as high-quality entry-level technicians within the many diversified industries that NDT serves.Employment OutlookRecent graduates report an average starting salary of $19.75 per hour, with a high of $26.45 per hour.Starting TermsSummer Quarter, Winter Quarter.Nondestructive Testing Technology-AASCurriculumNONDESTRUCTIVE TESTING CORE REQUIREMENTSTake the following:NDTT-1121 Visual Inspection MethodsNDTT-1133 Manufacturing ProcessesWELD-1182 Welding Processes for NDTNDTT-1164 Blueprint Reading & CADNDTT-1236 Electrical & Electronic FundamentalsNDTT-1255 NDT MethodsNDTT-1263 MetallurgyNDTT-1356 Liquid PenetrantNDTT-1360 Ultrasonics INDTT-1450 Eddy Current INDTT-1458 Magnetic ParticleNDTT-1464 Radiography INDTT-1470 Radiation Safety & AdministratrationNDTT-2040 NDTT MathematicsNDTT-2569 Radiography II & Film InterpreNDTT-2570 Eddy Current IINDTT-2652 Ultrasonics IINDTT-2675 Computer Applications in NDTNDTT-2679 Code Interpretation & ProceduresBSAD-2540 Principles of ManagementPHYS-1017 Technical PhysicsGENERAL ED REQUIREMENT CORETake SPCH-1090 or SPCH-1110 or SPCH-2810;SPCH-1090 Fund of Human CommunicationsSPCH-1110 Public SpeakingSPCH-2810 Business & Professional CommunTake ENGL-1010 or ENGL-1015;ENGL-1010 Composition IENGL-1015 Composition & LiteratureTake one math class listed in the college catalog.
