Welding Technology

Why Choose the Welding Technology Program?

Welding opens up a world of creativity, giving someone the power to lay out, fit up and fabricate just about anything they can imagine out of metal. There is an instant gratification that comes from building useful objects out of metal, and that's something welders get to experience every day.

Our Welding Technology program provides students with technical skills and knowledge that put them ahead of others in the industry of welding, metal fabrication, and related occupations.

Employers look for capable certified welders ready and eager to go to work, people who are reliable and can learn and be trained and are excited about the product they make. If you have a creative streak and enjoy fabricating new things, a career in welding might be the perfect fit for you.
