Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) has been widely regarded as a pervasive need and high priority for all aspects of manufacturing processes. The impact of NDT is crosscutting and impacts almost the entire cycle of manufacturing processes, e.g., materials, processing, inspection, and certification. NDT has been proved to be extremely beneficial for product evaluation and research and is widely observed in the fields of automation, aviation, and manufacturing as such and allows in identifying and characterizing material and defects in products realized thereby, assures the functionality and reliability of a system or its constituent structural components. However, such techniques require specialized training for applying and interpreting the data from non-destructive evaluation tests and thereby sets a necessity to introduce the current emerging workforce to NDT skills to meet the demand for trained workforce in manufacturing industries. This paper aims to provide an in-depth outline of Ultrasonic technology based NDT technique used for training in the Industrial Manufacturing and Systems Engineering department at the University of XXXX. Omni Scan SX equipment was used for training, that transmits high-frequency waves into a material to enable in detecting imperfection or to locate changes in a given material and its properties. Students were trained and provided with IIW type 1 reference Block which was tested to detect and characterize a defect in the block.
