Ultrasonics and Non-destructive Testing

The Ultrasonics and Non-Destructive Testing (UNDT) group undertake internationally leading research into the fundamentals and applications of ultrasonics. With six core members of academic staff and a dedicated team of 25 PhD/EngD students and research assistants, we have a diverse range of projects underway and are always open to new ideas and collaborations.

Our aim is to develop exciting new ultrasonic sensors and devices. We collaborate with other universities and industry in a drive to get our research out of the lab and into the real world.

Professor Bruce Drinkwater, Head of Group


Our philosophy is to undertake a balance of fundamental engineering science ultrasonics research alongside more applied research. We see this mix of fundamental and applied as incredibly valuable and our aim is to see selected topics through from conception to industrial uptake.
