Welding Technology is an associate degree or certificate program that combines practical, theoretical, and technical training in welding fabrication. Manual, semiautomatic, and automatic processes using oxy fuel and arc welding processes in SMAW, GMAW, GTAW, and plasma are covered. Advanced courses deal with application of welding codes to develop the expertise needed to understand specifications used in industry. Training is done on both structural and piping materials in mild steel, stainless, and aluminum alloys. Program graduates typically find employment as welding technicians, robotic welding technicians, and technical sales representatives. As such, they are responsible for one or more of the following: welding metal alloys, fabricating metals to specifications, troubleshooting faulty weldments, writing procedures, interpreting conventional and computer-aided prints, and selling and servicing equipment.
