Description

The Welding Technology, A.A.S. degree program utilizes hands-on, practical training in basic and advanced welding techniques for welding steel, stainless steel, and aluminum materials. Welding training emphasizes stick, MIG, and TIG welding in pipe and structural applications, along with other skills needed in the workplace such as blueprint reading, robotic welding, fabrication, and welding metallurgy. Upon successful completion of this degree program, students will be prepared for a variety of employment opportunities related to welding, primarily in construction and metalworking.

Program Outcomes

Upon completion, students will be able to:

  • Interpret blueprints and associated weld symbols
  • Demonstrate ability to complete tasks in a metal fabrication environment including identifying/choosing proper materials, cutting materials to proper dimensions, fitting the materials together, and tack welding the materials in the proper location
  • Demonstrate needed skills required for a Structural Plate certification test following proper procedures and meeting the requirements of the welding codes
  • Write and/or alter robotic welding programs for use in a manufacturing environment
  • Demonstrate proper technique in the application of GMAW (MIG)
  • Demonstrate proper technique in the application of GTAW (TIG)
  • Demonstrate needed skills required for a SMAW Pipe certification test following proper procedures and meeting the requirements of the welding codes
  • Demonstrate needed skills required for a GTAW Pipe Steel certification test following proper procedures and meeting the requirements of the welding codes
  • Demonstrate needed skills required for a Stainless Steel welding certification test following proper procedures and meeting the requirements of the welding codes
