The Welding Technology Program is a 68 quarter-credit-hour program. The majority of the course time is spent working with welding equipment and welding in the vertical, horizontal, and overhead positions. Practical applications of welding, namely, oxyacetylene, metallic arc, tungsten inert gas (TIG) and metal inert gas (MIG) are included in the program. Supporting classroom theory is given in welding theory, blueprint reading, and basic shop math, and gas welding.
The Welding Technology Program graduates should be qualified as entry-level welders and fabricators who work in general fabrication, shipbuilding, pipeline welding, the aircraft industry, maintenance, and even welding product representatives.
