Drs. Thomas and Jennifer Michaels head their QUEST (Quantitative Ultrasonic Evaluation, Sensing and Testing) Laboratory and research group at Georgia Tech in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Marietta NDT is proud to be a supporter of this ongoing research.
The staff at Marietta NDT assisted in the development of the new Mechatronics Engineering program at Southern Polytechnic which combines the mechanical, electrical, and computer science disciplines. Graduates with this degree go into industry armed with the skill-set needed to support today’s manufacturing and production systems.

BEST Robotics is a non–profit volunteer organization which began in Dallas, Texas in 1993 to motivate students to pursue careers in engineering, science and technology. The late Dr. Glenn Allen of Southern Polytechnic State University was instrumental in promoting this program in Georgia.
Southern Polytechnic has hosted the event for several years, and students from around the state, with the support of their parents and hometown teachers and friends, come to compete in a variety of areas. By offering this competition, Dr. Allen was able to promote Georgia’s technical colleges like Southern Polytechnic and has also had the opportunity to encourage high school and middle school students to explore the field of engineering, and specifically Mechanical Engineering Technology, as a field of study and a career choice. Marietta NDT has gladly sponsored this event for several years both financially and by employees serving as advisors and judges.
