Welding is the most common way of permanently joining metal parts. In this process, heat is applied to metal pieces, melting and fusing them to form a permanent bond. Because of its strength, welding is used in shipbuilding, automobile manufacturing and repair, aerospace applications, and thousands of other manufacturing activities. Welding is also  used to join beams when constructing buildings, bridges, and other structures and to join pipes in pipelines, power plants, and refineries.


Students who complete this program are well prepared to enter entry-level and much needed, high-priority welding positions or may advance their technical education.
