The Welding Technology program offers specialized welding and fabrication instruction through theoretical, practical and technical learning objectives and strategies. The core curriculum specializes in welding and fabrication and delves into the expanses of welding technology as a whole. Students are first introduced to welding, cutting and fabrication safety; theory and fundamentals; and then transition to more advanced welding and fabrication processes and application, such as weld quality, inspection testing and repair techniques and automated welding and cutting systems and operations. Students who successfully complete this program will have learned a diverse skillset giving them opportunities to enter the workforce as entry-level welders, fabricators, field technicians and positions them for higher learning in welding engineering, welding education or materials science.
