Welders work in a variety of industries ranging from shipbuilding, automobile manufacturing and repair, aerospace applications, and thousands of other manufacturing jobs. They use large machinery as well as hand-held or remotely controlled equipment to join, repair, or cut metal parts and products. They may work outdoors, often in inclement weather, or indoors, sometimes in a confined area.

This degree is designed to prepare students to supervise or manage businesses with welders while providing additional welding skills. Students will learn basic and advanced techniques in oxyacetylene, gas metal arc, shielded metal arc, and gas tungsten arc welding processes. They will use basic math skills to assist them in building and repairing. Brazing, oxyacetylene cutting and blueprint reading are part of the program. Some occupations are combination welder, gas, and arc welder, welder/fitter, layout/welder, and fabricator. Graduates will be able to work in shipyards, fabrication shops, and the construction industry.
