Welding Technology

The Associate of Applied Science in Welding Technology prepares students to work in the field using oxyacetylene (gas) and electric (arc) processes. THe program emphasizes knowledge and skill required to work with modern industrial welding equipment using advanced welding techniques including Stick, Metal Inert Gas (MIG), Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG), and Pipe techniques. Students in the program will be prepared for specific American Welding Society (AWS) certifications.

Upon successful completion of this program, students will be trained to: 
  1. Weld in (flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead positions) using the basic welding processes stick, MIG, TIG, and pipeline. 
  2. Perform metal layout processes. 
  3. Cut metals using oxyfuel and plasma arc cutting processes. 
  4. Apply the fundamentals of welding processes.
  5. Apply the principles of metallurgy during the welding process.
  6. Read and interpret basic blueprints and welding symbols to fabricate components. 
  7. Apply basic mathematics and measurement.
  8. Follow industry safety practices.
