The Future Innovation in Non-Destructive Evaluation programme from University of Bristol is recognised as a world leader within NDE, having produced several important research outcomes that are now exploited by industry, both in the UK and around the world.
This responds to rapidly changing needs of UK industry and a society that demands low costs with high levels of safety and reliability. This need is driven by many factors such as new materials, advanced manufacturing technologies, digitalisation, the Internet of Things, robotic systems, the civil nuclear renaissance and the pressing requirement to extend the life of our ageing national infrastructure.
Graduates are found in a variety of careers all over the globe, including world-leading research. Many work as consultants or as part of large-scale engineering industries with excellent employability as a result of studying in the centre.
