Welding is the most common way of permanently joining metal parts.  Typically, heat is applied to the metal pieces to be joined, melting the parts and fusing them to form a permanent bond.  Because of its strength, welding is use to construct and repair:

  • Parts of ships
  • Automobiles
  • Heavy Equipment
  • Thousands of other products

Persons considering work as welders need manual dexterity, good eyesight, and good hand-eye coordination.  They should have the ability to concentrate on detailed work for long periods and be physically able to bend and work in awkward positions.  The degree program teaches advanced welding classes and safety and business classes to prepare the student for a supervisory/management position or potentially owning their own business.
