EVERYTHING
WE TOUCH
MATERIALS ENGINEERING
TECHNOLOGY AND ITS
IMPORTANCE IN OUR
DAILY LIVES
 BY TIM RAUF
THE ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
PROFESSIONAL IS VIGILANT.
THOSE IN THE PROFESSION MAINTAIN
THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE INFRASTRUCTURE
WE TAKE FOR GRANTED EVERY DAY. ALL
CERTIFIED TECHNOLOGISTS ENDEAVOUR
TO FIT THIS BILL. THOSE ACTIVE IN
MATERIALS ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
ARE NO EXCEPTION.
These are the people that inspect the metals, ceramics,
composites and polymers we rely on by drilling,
magnetizing, etching, polishing, grinding and dozens
of other inspection processes. Through destructive
testing (DT) and nondestructive testing (NDT),
materials professionals can determine corrosion in
concrete, cracks in welds, and impact resistance, to
name a few. In all parts of a product's life cycle, these
individuals are inspecting the materials we take for
granted not to fail - and uncovering the reasons for
the failure when that happens.
With a range of applications so widespread, there
isn't a technology discipline that doesn't involve materials
testing.
" It doesn't matter if it's civil engineering, mechanical
engineering, electrical engineering - everybody's using
different materials, " says Steven Triolaire, chair of
NAIT's materials engineering technology program.
" WE'RE USUALLY
PART OF A TEAM.
We're working with the other
engineers, just helping them
understand how materials might
fail or how we can test them
to make sure that they're going
to last for the useful life of the
part, " Triolaire explains.
