About this Program
This 33-credit one-year diploma is designed to prepare the student for entry to various types of manufacturing jobs that require welding. In addition to the core knowledge provided by the Production Technologies courses, students will study welding procedures, safety, metallurgy and mechanical properties of materials, as well as gain hands-on experience with specific welding processes such as oxyacetylene cutting and welding and gas tungsten arc welding. The student will be proficient at setting up welding machines and trouble-shooting common problems related to the welding process. The student will be trained in following written and verbal instructions for proper lay-out, tacking, and fabrication of weldments so those weldments will be within a given set of tolerances.
