WELDING | FABRICATION TECHNOLOGY

  • Combination Welder

    This major will teach students to do quality welding for a variety of construction and manufacturing jobs using multiple structural welding techniques. Instruction will cover welding theory and safety, fabrication, layout, print reading, symbols, math, welding codes, metal characteristics/properties and oxy-fuel cutting. Students will learn to perform high quality welds in accordance with welding procedure specifications used in a variety of welding occupations. They will also gain an introduction to pipe welding skills, using SMAW, FCAW GMAW, and GTAW techniques.

     

  • Cutting Process Technician

    This career major is designed to cover the basics of oxy fuel and plasma arc cutting, metal preparation and heat treatment, and air carbon arc gouging. Students cover safety, amperage, gas pressure, flow rate and cutting methods for piercing, slotting, squaring and beveling metals while using detailed drawings and learning the fundamentals of all cutting processes.

     

  • Entry Level Welder

    This career major is an introduction to common welding processes and precision metal fabrication. Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of welding and the cutting processes. Students will be introduced to Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) equipment and Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) basics. Students will also be introduced to blue print reading and construction of items according to specifications.

     

  • Pipe Welder

    This major prepares students to do quality pipe welding in construction or in the petroleum industry. Instruction includes welding theory, fabrication, layout, print reading, welding symbols, math and welding codes with specialized instruction in Shielded Metal Arc Welding (stick), Gas Metal Arc Welding (MIG), Flux-cored Arc Welding (FCAW), and Gas tungsten Arc Welding (TIG) techniques. This major offers specialized preparation for pipe certification by the American Welding Society (AWS).

     

  • Structural & Pipe Welder

    This major prepares students to do quality pipe and structural welding in construction or in the petroleum industry. Instruction includes welding theory, fabrication, layout, print reading, welding symbols, math and welding codes with specialized instruction in Shielded Metal Arc Welding (stick), Gas Metal Arc Welding (MIG), Flux-cored Arc Welding (FCAW), and Gas tungsten Arc Welding (TIG) techniques. This major offers specialized preparation for both structural and pipe certification by the American Welding Society (AWS).

     

  • Structural Welder

    This major prepares students to do quality structural welding in construction or in the petroleum industry. Instruction includes welding theory, fabrication, layout, print reading, welding symbols, math and welding codes with specialized instruction in Shielded Metal Arc Welding (stick), Gas Metal Arc Welding (MIG), Flux-cored Arc Welding (FCAW), and Gas tungsten Arc Welding (TIG) techniques. This major offers specialized preparation for structural certification by the American Welding Society (AWS).

     

  • Welder / Fitter

    This career major is an introduction to common welding processes and precision metal fabrication. Students will be introduced to Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), and Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW). Students will also be introduced to blue print reading and construction of items according to specifications. Additional areas covered include development of layout and the sequence of operations for fabricating and assembling metal products. Students will be instructed in the proper processing in fitting materials together and how to test the strength of the welds.

     

  • Welding & Metal Fabrication Workforce Transition

    This career major is designed to enhance the development of leadership and employability skills which assists with student transition into the work-site experience, a primary methodology utilized to broaden the learner’s skills and increase effectiveness and productivity.  It is particularly appropriate for developing proficiency skills unique to a given occupation – especially occupations that require locally owned equipment and facilities.  Internships, project-based instruction and the acquisition of industry certification will be the focus during this career major to reinforce knowledge and skills obtained within the Welding and Metal Fabrication Pathway career majors.  Students will make final preparations for industry transition as they master outlined competencies, undertake special projects, cross-train, and/or participate in workplace learning opportunities to enhance skills in accordance with current and future industry demands.
