A Career in Building Things to Last
The welding technology program offers two options for professional credentials:
- A three-term welding certificate program combines training with classes in the background knowledge workers need in welding occupations
- You practice and develop your welding skills in the laboratory and may take an examination for certification in plate welding
- The six-term Welding Fabrication AAS degree program is for those who want to acquire the technical knowledge and skills required for workers in welding, fabrication, and related occupations
Welding fabrication technicians are skilled in the use of oxyacetylene welding and cutting equipment, manual arc, tungsten inert gas (TIG), and metallic inert gas (MIG) processes and have a working knowledge of shop blueprints and welding symbols, jig fabrication, and assembly processes.
