MISTRAS Teams up with Drexel for AE Courses


MISTRAS has teamed up with Drexel University and Goodwin College of Engineering professor, Dr. Vladimir Genis, to organize, implement and teach an undergrad class on Acoustic Emission (AE).

For 10 weeks during the 2011 spring term, our Principal Scientist for MISTRAS Products & Systems, traveled to Drexel University with AE equipment to educate 10 students on the basic principles of AE. Using three Pocket AE’s, a 2-channel PCI-2 system and a SAMOS system, Adrian was able to train his students on acoustic emission, as well as exposing them to the equipment and services MISTRAS offers.

This opportunity came together for MISTRAS when Dr. Genis decided he would like to expand the curriculum offered to Drexel students, beyond the Ultrasonic course he teaches. As a well known engineering university, Dr. Genis hopes his efforts will persuade Drexel to offer a Non Destructive Evaluation (NDE) minor or certification program, significantly preparing undergrads for a career in NDE. This proposal would extend NDE classes beyond ultrasonics and AE to include development in additional inspection methods including eddy current, remote visual inspection, magnetic particles and liquid penetrant testing.

“We are thrilled to be part of this exciting opportunity in developing and molding the future engineers and NDT professionals of our time,” says our Principal Scientist. “I look forward to coming back next spring and teaching a new batch of students not only about the exciting world of AE but about the important role MISTRAS plays in shaping the NDT industry.”

With the success of the AE course under his belt, Dr. Genis is now in the process of proposing a project to develop a Mid-Atlantic Center for Non Destructive Evaluation to be offered to all the local educational institutes in the Tri-State area.
