The Welding Technology Associate of Science degree prepares students for work in areas of shipbuilding, bridges and building construction, pipeline construction, refrigeration, missile and aircraft construction, automobile and related industries where metal must be joined together. Developments in metallurgy have created many types of metals that require new techniques to join and fasten.
Upon successful completion of this program, the student will be able to:
- Demonstrate use of mathematic skills, as needed, in the fabricating industry;
- Demonstrate the knowledge and skills to safely use tools and equipment in a fabricating/welding shop;
- Identify the difference between ferrous and non-ferrous metals; and
- Demonstrate the ability to pass the relevant American Welding Society Unlimited Structural Certification Tests (code D1.1)
