Welders must be highly skilled and knowledgeable in a variety of welding processes to meet the challenges of advanced technology and new materials. Welding is not just a trade; it’s a tool for many trades requiring a high level of training and technical knowledge. The Welding Technology program helps students develop skills through classroom studies and hands-on experience under close supervised instruction. Students learn about structural steel fabrication, layout work, and pipe welding following detailed blueprints.
