WELDING TECHNOLOGY (WDT)

 

MISSION: The mission of the Welding program is to prepare a skilled craftsman for employment or advancement in welding and fabricating industries. The program also provides specialized courses for welders desiring to upgrade their skills or to learn new skills.

The Welding curriculum provides students with the opportunity to acquire the skills, knowledge, and experience necessary for a career in this rapidly growing field. Emphasis is placed on the technical aspects of welding. Classroom and lab experiences are offered in the welding of carbon, aluminum and stainless base metals with various welding processes. Specialized classes include blueprint reading/fabrication, welding inspection and testing, oxyfuel and plasma arc cutting, CNC automated cutting, pipe welding and layout. Students may also become AWS certified welders upon program completion. This program consists of one short certificate, one certificate and one A.O.T. degree option.
