The Welding & Metal Fabrication program consist of instruction designed to meet the needs of students who are planning to pursue a career as a welder/metal fabricator. The program develops a theoretical and technical foundation to support a safe, hands-on learning experience using a variety of tools, equipment and metals. An innovative industrial based curriculum blends trade related math, science, and metallurgy with state of the art equipment.
Welding processes covered in a project-based format include Shielded Metal Arc Welding, Gas Tungsten Arc Welding, Gas Metal Arc Welding, Oxyacetylene, and Plasma Arc Cutting. The shearing, bending, rolling and forming of metals are also included in a project-oriented format. This program is based on American Welding Society and American Society of Mechanical Engineers standards. Students will have the opportunity to work towards certification to these standards.
Employers prefer to hire welders who have graduated from a welding trade school because they've have had the opportunity to learn the math, drawing, physics, chemistry and metallurgy needed to weld properly.
