The Welding Engineering Technology AAS program provides students with an in-depth background of the welding industry. By combining classroom theory and practical experience, students will develop the skills needed for entry-level jobs in the field of welding. Welding courses include practice for welding certifications offered in house by our AWS Accredited Testing Facility. Those planning careers in welding need manual dexterity, good hand-eye coordination and good eyesight. They should have the ability to concentrate on detailed work for long periods and be physically able to bend, stoop and work in awkward positions, as well as possess good problem-solving aptitude, shop math skills and exhibit a strong work ethic. Successful completion of this program of study leads to the associate of applied science degree.
