The Production Welding diploma program emphasizes all major welding and cutting processes. A Welding certificate is available to students who desire training in only one welding process and is based on availability. As a Production Welding student you will gain hands-on knowledge of metallurgy, blueprint reading, the properties and identification of metals, welding symbols, and repair procedures. You will also learn to identify and understand welding defects, prevent distortion of metals, and design and fabricate products in a recently remodeled lab. You can perfect your skills through extensive hands-on training on state-of-the-art equipment such as a robotic welder. The Production Welding program offers students the opportunity to train for certification of structural pipe using mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum in AWS (American Welding Society), ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), and API (American Petroleum Industry Codes. Certification test(s) are administered in conjunction with the Continuing Education Office.
