Welding Technology

Welding technology prepares you for employment in welding and metal fabrication occupations. Specific preparation is provided in welding and metal fabrication and/or pipe and structural steel certification procedures including MIG, TIG, stick, and pipe processes.

Metal fabrication option includes instruction in the design and fabrication of metal projects by welding. Skills will be taught in design, manufacturing processes, production techniques, and material cost estimation.

Pipe and structural steel certification option includes pre-employment training for structural steel and pipe welding technicians. An emphasis is placed on developing certification code-level proficiency in the use of shielded metal arc and flux cored arc welding procedures used in the construction of components on bridges, building, and pressure vessel systems.

Throughout the program, you prepare for AWS industry certifications.
