Welding Technology

 Why pursue a career in welding? Great welders are needed all over the world, from the manufacturing plant floor in Lansing and the tallest skyscrapers in Tokyo to oil lines in the Middle East deserts and bridges spanning Australia’s widest rivers. You will learn the art and technology of joining metals together with heat, using special equipment to perform different welding processes such as oxy-fuel cutting and brazing, gas metal arc and shielded metal arc welding. You will also learn to accurately fabricate a project, work from blueprints, repair a broken part, problem solve a welding dilemma and use math and measurement skills to set up and lay out the parts used for the welding project. Gain skills in fabrication, repair/maintenance, reading blueprints and engineering.
