WEL3642 GAS TUNGSTEN ARC WELDING/PIPE COURSE PROCEDURE


WEL3642 GAS TUNGSTEN ARC WELDING/PIPE

3 Credit Hours

Student Level:

This course is open to students on the college level in either the freshman or sophomore year and to area high school vocational students.

Catalog Description:

WEL 3642 - Gas Tungsten Arc Welding/Pipe (3 hrs.)

Students in this course will be expected to pass qualification procedures in pipe welding using the gas tungsten arc welding process. Welds made in various positions will be subject to guided bend test or x-ray examination to detect flaws.

Course Classification:

Lab

Prerequisites:

WEL3623 GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding/Structural) or equivalent.

Controlling Purpose:

Students in this course will be exposed to welding chemistry and metallurgy, automated welding systems and maintenance of equipment.

Learner Outcomes:

Students in this course will be expected to pass qualification procedures in pipe welding using the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding process.  Welds made in various positions will be subject to guided bend test and x-ray examination to detect flaws.

Unit Outcomes for Criterion Based Evaluation:

The following outline defines the minimum core content not including the final examination period. Instructors may add other material as time allows.

Textbook:

Contact Bookstore for current textbook.

Attendance Policy:

Students should adhere to the attendance policy outlined by the instructor in the course syllabus.

Grading Policy:

The grading policy will be outlined by the instructor in the course syllabus.

Maximum class size:

Based on classroom occupancy.

Course Time Frame:

The U.S. Department of Education, Higher Learning Commission and the Kansas Board of Regents define credit hour and have specific regulations that the college must follow when developing, teaching and assessing the educational aspects of the college.  A credit hour is an amount of work represented in intended learning outcomes and verified by evidence of student achievement that is an institutionally-established equivalency that reasonably approximates not less than one hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two hours of out-of-class student work for approximately fifteen weeks for one semester hour of credit or an equivalent amount of work over a different amount of time.  The number of semester hours of credit allowed for each distance education or blended hybrid courses shall be assigned by the college based on the amount of time needed to achieve the same course outcomes in a purely face-to-face format.
