WELDING TECHNOLOGY
ASSOCIATE IN APPLIED SCIENCE

The two-year curriculum in welding is designed to provide sufficient skill and training in the various basic welding and cutting processes. These basic skills prepare a person for entry-level employment as a welder to industry. These skills are required in the fabrication and construction of products and structures made of metal, and the maintenance and repair of these products and structures.

Emphasis is placed on the opportunity to gain practical experiences in welding, and to provide related courses in layout, interpreting blueprints and drawings, and properties of various metals.
