About Our Program

Graduates of the Technical Studies Welding program are trained in the job skills necessary to enter employment as  apprentice welders immediately upon completion of the curriculum.  Course work includes a strong emphasis in welding technology with related courses in computer applications, quality control, teamwork, and communication.


Opportunities for Employment

Graduates can expect to find employment as welders in a variety of industries including mining, manufacturing and construction.


Special Consideration


Up to 15 hours credit may be given for documented previous work experience and certifications. Although the program is designed to educate and train welders entering the industry, the program offers increased skill levels and knowledge for experienced welders as well. Welders seeking a degree or desiring promotion to upper level managerial positions should also take advantage of this excellent opportunity.
