Welding Technology (AAS)

Welding Technology is a diversified program of skills dealing with the fabrication of metal products from rolled, stamped, forged or cast shapes. The type of metal, position of weldments, and use of structural shapes will be handled in a manner similar to that used in industrial processing. Selection of the proper welding methods, materials and procedures required will provide training in solving realistic problems found in the welding field. Students who wish to complete a program in two years are advised to use a sequence of courses recommended by their counselor or by the instructor. If a student wishes to attend college on less than a full-time basis, the program may be extended beyond two years. Students may wish to complete only the certificate program in welding.
