Welding Technology (AAS)

This program is designed to provide basic skills necessary to pursue a career in welding. Students will learn skills dealing with the fabrication of metal products from rolled, stamped, forged or cast shapes. Curriculum will also focus on the type of metal, position of weldments, and use of structural shapes in a manner similar to that used in industrial processing. Upon completing this program students will be prepared to work as a welding operator, welding technician, welding maintenance technician or welding automation technician. Students planning to transfer to a four-year college should consult with an MCC counselor.
