WELD.AAS.C33

Program Overview

The Welding curriculum is designed to provide the student with fundamental theory in the technology of welding processes, metallurgy, and fabrication design. He or she will develop practical skills in drafting, tungsten, and inert gas welding, metal inert gas welding, stick electrode welding, oxyacetylene welding, oxyacetylene cutting and oxyacetylene brazing. Students will be required to furnish personal protective equipment and tools. Welding Technology graduates are generally prepared to enter welding programs at selected colleges and universities with junior status.

Additional Program Information

A transfer agreement with at least one four-year college or university exists for this A.A.S. program. Students should consult an advisor for more information.
