Welcome to our site!


The Thiruvananthapuram chapter of ISNT was started as Trivandrum Section of Nondestructive Testing Society of India (NDTSI) on September 21, 1978, by the efforts of a small group of scientists and engineers of Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre. Trivandrum Section of NDTSI was actively involved in the development of NDT technology.

In the early nineties, the two leading professional bodies in the area of nondestructive testing namely NDTSI and Indian Institute of Nondestructive Inspection Engineering IINDIE, merged together to form a single professional body named ISNT and this Section has transformed into the present Thiruvananthapuram Chapter of ISNT.
