Welding Technology Program Requirements

The Welding Technology courses are designed to meet the needs of the beginning welding students as well as the needs of people who are upgrading their welding skills. Students will develop their skills in this area through laboratory experience using equipment representative of the welding industry. Welding classes can prepare students to be a certified welder, provide a certificate in Welding Technology, or an Associate in Applied Science degree through the Manufacturing Technology program. The welding curriculum includes Oxyacetylene, Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), on both ferrous and nonferrous materials.
