Welding Technology

Turn your passion for hands-on work into a rewarding career as you transform metals from concept to real-life application.

The 1-year program immerses students in theory and hands-on lab instruction in welding, fitting, and related metalworking processes. Coursework provides students with a foundation in blueprint reading and fabrication plans, and covers oxy-fuel cutting and welding, carbon arc cutting and gouging, shielded metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, flux core arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, and pipe welding.

The knowledge and skills you develop over the course of the 1-year program is also designed to prepare you for a number of industry certification options offered by the American Welding Society (AWS) and Washington Association of Building Officials (WABO) in order to make you a more attractive job candidate.  Additionally, students will have the ability to participate in offsite externships where they can take their newly acquired hands-on skills and put them to work as they gain experience with practical application.  From oil fields and aerospace environments to working on skyscrapers and farm equipment, there are many avenues to pursue.  Schedule your program tour today and be on your way to a rewarding career in just one year.
