Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study by Pathway

Welders use a variety of equipment to apply intense heat to metal for the purpose of joining them together or for cutting or trimming them to desired sizes or shapes. Manual welding is done under the complete control of the welder. Semiautomatic welding is done using equipment such as an electrode‐feeding gun, which requires some control and manipulation by the welder. Automatic welding is done by a machine, which performs most of the welding functions under the attention of a welding operator.

Students must earn a minimum of 60 credit hours and have an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher in order to earn a degree. Students must also take any required third‐party exams, especially in the AAAS concentrations, such as NOCTI or NCLEX.
