The technology and applications of Non Destructive Testing (NDT) are wide-ranging and constantly evolving. Major fields of application include the aerospace industry, oil, gas and energy generation, chemical industries, space technology, rail transport, shipping and manufacturing.

Other applications are constantly emerging and there are strong links with medical technology. New NDT techniques need to be developed to meet the changing needs of nano-technologies.

Course Overview

Careers in NDT often offer opportunities to travel and to work in new, high technology industries. The series of taught modules that form part one of the course will develop your in-depth knowledge and understanding of non-destructive testing technologies. The University has access to a range of state-of-the-art equipment and technologies including: Infrared Thermography; Ultrasonics; Scanning Laser Doppler Vibrometer; a ballistics testing cell and, DeltaVision computer software for the measurement of photoelasticity. Practical tasks undertaken with these facilities will enable you to develop your skills in applying a variety of testing and measurement techniques and critically examining the results.

Upon the successful completion of 120 credits in part one, you will be required to undertake an independent research project worth 60 credits. Your dissertation supervisor will be available to you to help guide you through the independent research phase.

Collaboration and Knowledge Transfer
Non Destructive Testing (NDT) and evaluation is a key area of research for UWTSD Swansea, where we are the lead academic partner in the NDT Validation Centre in Port Talbot (just outside Swansea), operated by TWI, a global leader in technology engineering and one of the UK's largest research organisations, with an international reputation. This partnership offers excellent opportunities to our students, providing industrial links relevant to the Part 2 project. Furthermore, funding from the Welsh Government and from the EPSRC has facilitated the acquisition of state-of-the-art equipment. Other links with industry include: Knauf Insulation; Silverwing UK Ltd; Oceaneering Inspection Services; Team Precision Pipeline Assembllies; Cyden; and, Rikoset.

This course provides the opportunity to obtain the skills required to develop and commercialise new technologies in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Students will have an invaluable chance to work with experts in both engineering and business, providing an excellent basis for those engineers who wish to commercialise their ideas or graduates who wish to develop their knowledge of management and entrepreneurship in a high tech environment.

The course brings together strengths and resources from of both the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the Nottingham University Business school. As will have invaluable chance to experience the steps necessary to commercialise a technical idea, this programme provides an excellent basis for the engineers who wish to commercialise their ideas or graduates who wish to explore the exciting world of commercialisation.

The course provides an excellent basis for engineers who wish to update their knowledge in this area, or students/engineers who wish to go on to do research or study for a PhD degree, as well as first degree students who would like to enhance their training.

Students will develop:
the skills required to develop and commercialise new technologies in electrical and electronic engineering
the ability to plan and undertake a research project and work in a team environment
interpersonal, communication and professional skills
the ability to communicate ideas effectively in written reports
an awareness of contemporary problems in the fields of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and both present and futuristic approaches to their solutions

Following the successful completion of the taught modules, a group research project is undertaken during the summer term.
The project will demand the completion of a major piece of commercialisation work on an advanced technical topic.

Previous research projects on this course have included:
Industrial cure monitoring in the automobile and aerospace industries
Assessment of market potential for embedded ultrasonic sensors for structural health monitoring
Commercial opportunity for novel capsule endoscopes
Commercial assessment of portable laser Doppler blood flow monitors

This programme provides a practical understanding in a number of key areas of Electronic Engineering. You will work with current and familiar technology, such as Wi-Fi, and will discover what the future holds for silicon technology by studying sensory equipment, energy generation and interaction with surroundings. The technical element of the degree includes system-on-chip, microengineering, RF engineering, control, communications and embedded systems, whilst the practical element features digital design and the design of microstructures for switching and biomedical applications, in addition to the programming of embedded microcontrollers, RF circuits and methods of building control loops and associated software.

To meet the demands of emerging markets such as Health, Security, Energy and the Environment, the programme will explore advanced sensors for chips and assemblies, and will cover actuators, display technologies and microwave and millimetre wave electronic systems. You will enhance your skills in MEMS design, microfluidics, high-frequency technologies and control solutions, in addition to advanced nanoelectronics.

The electronics industry is expanding rapidly with the UK alone aiming to increase the sector’s economic contribution from £80bn to £120bn by 2020 and creating 150,000 highly-skilled jobs in the process. Smart Grid, Health Care and Medicine, and Energy and Environment are set to join established industrial sectors including Security, Transport and Aerospace as key employment sectors for electronic engineers. We therefore equip our students with the skills and knowledge needed to further their career in these industries; a major part of which is linked into the opportunity to participate in existing projects that are both challenging and linked into real industrial need. In the past, these projects have helped to establish student-industry connections that can often lead to employment. Previous project topics have included:

  • Detection of living cells in a microfluidic system using electrochemical and RF technologies
  • Self-repairable electronics through unification of self-test and calibration technology
  • Solution-processed electronics over a large area: Design and realisation of a fully computerised XY(Z) spray coater employing multiple pneumatic and/or ultrasonic airbrushes
  • Higher-order mode couplers in semiconducting RF cavities
  • Monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) design for wireless networks
  • Vision and robotic control interface system.
