You want a hands-on career in welding? You’re going to need a hands-on training program.
The welding program is designed to develop your skills in the primary welding and metal cutting processes used in today’s industry. Laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment with ample supplies and consumable materials to enhance your skill progression.
You will be taught the joining processes, Shielded Metal Arc Welding, Gas Metal Arc Welding, Flux Cored Arc Welding, Gas Tungsten Arc Welding and Oxy-Acetylene welding. Additionally, you will learn oxy-fuel cutting, plasma arc cutting and how to use industrial mechanical equipment to cut and prepare material for welding.
Course completion can lead to welding certifications and MCC Certificates of Completion providing a stepped path leading to our MCC Welding AAS degree.
Associates of Applied Science (AAS) in Welding
The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Welding program prepares students to work in the field using various welding processes. The program emphasizes knowledge and skill required to work with modern industrial welding equipment using advanced welding techniques including Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) and Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW).
Program Notes: Students must earn a grade of "C" or better for all courses within the program. + indicates course has prerequisites and/or corequisites.
Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Welding
The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Welding is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in the manufacturing and welding industries, as well as to provide updated skills to currently employed welders. Certification exams for the American Welding Society (A.W.S.) are incorporated into the advanced classes. Program completers may obtain positions in almost any industry requiring the common arc welding process skills.
