Brazil engineering in NDT



Cowley College and Kansas State-Salina partnered for the fall 2014 semester to provide close to 20 students the opportunity to work with equipment within Non-Destructive Testing (NDT).

As a part of the Brazil Scientific Mobility Program (BSMP) 55 engineering students were located at K-State Salina campus and out of those 55, approximately 20 enrolled in an introduction to NDT course taught by Kurt Jones who is also a Cowley College NDT instructor.

The BSMP is a 10 year project funded by the Brazilian Government to allow students the ability to study abroad. There have been about 75,000 students total that have worked within the program to study in the United States.

“Cowley College was pleased to have this opportunity to work with K State and provide the equipment for the students to work on and understand,” Cowley College NDT instructor/CTE Department Chair Joe Clasen said. “I hope that we can continue this program into the future with K State-Salina.”
