Welding Technology (095650)
Projected Start Date
The Certificate of Achievement in Welding Technology is designed to prepare students for entry level employment in a manufacturing environment. Key outcomes of the certificate include operating safely while performing the welding skills necessary to pass standard industry tests. Students will also learn to use auxiliary equipment, processes and materials. Completion of the certificate will provide the student a strong knowledge foundation to utilize and apply common welding processes.
• The Associate in Science in Welding Technology prepares students for the welding and manufacturing industry. Welding touches every aspect of our modern life from the shoes we wear to the food we eat. The Welder or Welding Technician is concerned with all of the activities related to the manufacturing, production, performance, and maintenance of welded products. Interest is primarily in the manufactured or fabricated product, including process selection, power sources, base and filler materials, manufacturing methods, hands-on skills training, inspection, quality control, performance evaluation, and equipment service. The broad range of welded products with which welders and welding technicians deal includes structures, such as bridges, buildings, utility equipment, wind turbines, and communication towers; pressure vessels and heat exchangers, such as nuclear systems, boilers, solar thermal systems, oil and natural gas exploration, chemical processing equipment, storage vessels, and transmission and distribution piping; transportation vehicles for water, land, air, and space travel; and production and processing machines of all types.
