The Welding program prepares students to enter into the industry as beginning production, maintenance, or job shop welders. Students are trained using the latest techniques in the fabrication of materials by welding process.

Welding continues to be one of the principle means of fabricating and repairing metal products. An independent certification laboratory evaluates each student's performance on the American Welding Society Structural Steel Bend test for possible certification before graduation.
