A new discipline: NDT integrity engineering
Recommendation of the Academia NDT International (approved on Oct 12th, 2018, Brescia)
The Academia NDT International would like to draw your attention to the emergence of the NDT Integrity Engineering discipline, which serves to safeguard the integrity of materials and structures through the use of advanced and appropriate NDT practices. The Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) profession belongs to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), which is a family of disciplines collecting the most important areas in emerging technologies. It is necessary for NDT to join other professions that are also aiming to adjust their educational programmes to the needs of those requiring advanced knowledge, skills and the correct disposition.
NDT Integrity Engineering is a discipline to develop non-destructive testing and evaluation involving materials science, fracture mechanics, and other sciences that would guarantee and enhance the reliability and safety by ensuring integrity of structures in everyday life.
