Engineering Technology/Welding Certificate

Curriculum ENT.WEL.CERT (C448Y)

The Engineering Technology/Welding Certificate program provides students with welding skills in a shop setting. Students are taught welding processes, such as ARC (Stick), Metal Inert Gas (MIG) and Tungsten Gas (TIG) welding, in various welding positions. In addition, students learn blueprints, other fabrication processes needed for employability and sheet metal layout/fabrication. Graduates find entry-level employment as entry level welders, solderers, and braziers, as well apprentice level industrial maintenance mechanics. (Fall 2018)


At the successful completion of the Engineering Technology/Welding Certificate, the graduate will be able to:

  • demonstrate safety practices with welding tools and equipment;
  • measure in inches and metric;
  • identify elements of a blueprint;
  • produce arc welds in the flat and horizontal positions using Oxyacetylene (MIG) and Tungsten Arc (TIG) welding processes;
  • be able to use an Oxyacetylene torch; and
  • demonstrate use of basic math skills to facilitate technical competencies.
