Our Welding Technology Program is designed to provide the student with an opportunity to acquire the technical knowledge and hands-on skills required for employment as a combination welder. We accomplish this task through classroom instruction and practical welding exercises carried out in an industrial shop setting. Welding Processes such as Flux Cored Arc, Gas Metal Arc, Gas Tungsten Arc and Shielded Metal Arc are covered in depth.
Welding is a dynamic industry with a bright future. The influence of welding is so broad that many of the product designs and building techniques of our modern day would not be possible without it. As the demand for skilled welders continues to rise and the technology of welding becomes more advanced, students have a unique opportunity to learn a career that will shape the future.
