President's Message

Non Destructive Testing & Evaluation - The Light-House for "MAKE IN INDIA" and Fitness for purpose - Establish through Non Destructive Testing & Evaluation


I am pleased that NDE 2015 is awarded to High tech Hyderabad and is aptly being conducted at the High Tech City like 2006. Hyderabad, well known for its culinary skills is also well known in technical circles for its contribution to high end technology in India with defense research laboratories, atomic energy establishments, heavy engineering industries and a host of medical and small industries to support. It is one of the major hubs for IT sector and with the advent of computers in all leading sectors of engineering industries, Hyderabad is one of the jewels in the crown of India.


NDE - 2006 conference was a resounding success with the CM of the State inaugurating the conference in an opulent manner. The conference was attended by around 950 participants and 139 technical papers were presented. The exhibition was a "who is who of NDE industries" of the world. A lot of water has flown under the bridge of NDE / NDT since 2006 with India adding many feathers to its cap in the field of space, nuclear, thermal and petroleum refining sectors.


I am sure that this time too conference will be yet again a resounding success. Slogans of "Zero Defect" and "Make in India" are creating waves and expectations from the Indian technologists are reaching a peak. Let us remember that the world is watching India with awe and inquisitiveness. Let us all put in our best efforts and join ISNT Hyderabad Chapter in realising the dream of multitude of Indians of regaining past glory and making India a super power.


Best wishes & Jai Hind.
