Description

The North Central Collaboration for Education in NDE/NDT (NCCE) is working to develop computer based educational materials as part of a project to enhance NDE education. The NCCE is a cooperative effort between Iowa State University, and four community colleges with two-year NDE technician education programs. The two-year institutions participating in the program are Cowley County Community College in Arkansas City, Kansas; Ridgewater College in Hutchinson, Minnesota; Northeast Iowa Community College in Peosta, Iowa; and Southeast Iowa Community College in Milford, Nebraska. The three-year program is aimed at enhancing education in nondestructive evaluation and improving articulation between community college technician training programs and university technical degree programs. Each of the collaboration members has responsibility for the completion of an education improvement project, which has been selected for its widespread appeal to NDE educators. Many of the efforts to improve NDE education have evolved into the development of computer-based materials and tools. This paper will discuss the rational for these development efforts and report on progress.
