Description

UACCM’s Welding Technology program is creating a gateway to a host of career opportunities in the welding industry. The program provides training for students in the following areas of welding: welding safety, shielded metal arc (Stick Welding) welding, gas metal arc (MIG) welding, gas tungsten arc (TIG) welding, advanced tungsten arc welding, flux core arc welding, and blueprint reading. Students will be provided the opportunity to apply knowledge from theory-based classes to practical exercises in the lab. Students spend a significant amount of their time learning the different welding processes by actually welding in the lab. Students are graded based on their welding performances and held to the same standards outlined in the AWS D1.1 qualification standards.


There are few courses that provide an opportunity to be taken online or in the evening hours and are primarily the general education portion of the degree only. Courses within the program/department are not generally offered online or in the evenings.
