The Welding Engineering Technology III Certificate program provides students with an overview of basic safety, print reading, and the fundamentals of welding. By combining classroom theory and practical experience, students will develop the skills needed to supplement an entry level job in manufacturing or maintenance. 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.
