Welding Technology

About the Program
Welding, the most common way of permanently joining metal parts, is used to construct and repair parts of ships, automobiles, spacecraft and thousands of other manufactured products. Heat is applied to the pieces to be joined, melting and fusing them to form a permanent bond.
Students in the department learn traditional techniques on equipment they will use in the workforce, performing stick welds, mig welds, aluminum welds, tig welds, and many others.


Career Outlook
There will always be a need for hands-on welding, and knowing how to spot and correct problems during the welding process is essential. Being able to integrate welding techniques and knowledge with an ability to work with computers and robotic machinery is essential in order to keep up with the changing face of the welding industry. Today’s welders must also have a working knowledge of industrial blueprints, fabrication layout, process operation, and equipment setup, and be able to spot and correct problems in the welding process.
