Welding Technology

Inaugural Year Fall 2014

The Welding Technology curriculum provides students a sound understanding of the science, technology, and application essential for successful employment in the welding and metals industries.

Instruction includes consumable and non-consumable electrode welding and cutting processes. Courses in math, blueprint reading, metallurgy, welding inspection, and destructive and non-destructive testing provide the student with industry-standard skills developed through classroom training and practical application.

Successful graduates of the Welding Technology curriculum may be employed as entry-level technicians in welding and metalworking industries. Career opportunities also exist in construction, manufacturing, fabrication, sales, quality control, supervision, and welding-related self-employment.

This program leads to a Diploma in Welding Technology. To be eligible for graduation, the student must satisfactorily complete the course requirements listed in the College Catalog & Student Handbook [insert link to catalog and handbook page when posted].

The program checklist [insert link to checklist when posted] can be used as a guide to track progress; while the checklist is designed to mirror the catalog, the catalog is the official document of reference.

The Welding Technology program is a one-year program. Please study the program checklist closely, as it includes both credit and contact hours.
