Welding Technology Program Requirements

Associate in Applied Science Degree – NMC Code 386

The Associate in Applied Science builds upon the solid practical foundation of the Level I and Level II certificates, which include Gas Metal Arc Welding, Shielded Metal Arc Welding, Gas Tungsten Arc Welding, Flux Cored Arc Welding, Oxy-Fuel Processes, Plasma Arc Cutting, metallurgy, blueprint reading, machining, and electronics. The AAS student then supplements this by developing additional skills that are in high demand for welding professionals, including fabrication, quality testing, and automation.
