    A dedicated achiever at whatever i set my goals on. A mechanical Engineer for my first higher diploma with a post graduate diploma in Aerospace Manufacturing where i got introduced to composite and mold an unmanned aerial vehicle wings where i also carried out NDT on it using the ultrasonic testing. Currently an EN4179 NDT specialist. I am more interested in following up research and development in composites for aircraft and the NDT relevancy and development to composites in the Aerospace industry.
     As i look toward a MRes in courses related to Aerospace Manufacturing entailing Composites and NDT

    Welcome aboard MEGA @ SAMPE, Omobukola. NDT is a very important field, especially for commercial, business and military aircraft in order ​to keep them safe from the very first day they are put into service. SAMPE has several key Regions (North America, Europe, Japan, and China) with others growing in size and stature (Mexico, Brazil). All of our entities put on several  critical and technology-filled conference and exhibition events each year (sometimes two a year). NDT is an area that receives a lot of attention. Some defects are very hard to detect using only one technique. To that I suggest reading deeper into what you now know regarding Ultrasonics (thru-transmission and pulse echo types). CT-imaging which I do for many carbon fiber composites, is not only very interesting but shows you a whole new world into composites structure, defects, anomalies and suggested "solutions." One new 2nd Edition book you might appreciate is "Essentials of Advanced Composite Fabrication and Repair" (ISBN 978-1-61954-762-9. Also, SAMPE conference events almost always have a large selection of NDT technical papers which SAMPE Members can access. Please keep in touch.

    Hi Mr John,
    Thanks for the link to the wonderful journals and articles, have gone through the lists and I find some very relevant to my immediate scope of work and also some that are already giving me insights to what I might want to R&D in my MRes.
    Many thanks

    Kind regards
