The Associate in Applied Science Degree with a major in General Technology and specialization in Welding, allows a student to select additional coursework to gain skills beyond the Welding diploma to become multi-skilled in a second technical specialty that is based on local employment needs. Courses in safety, blueprint reading, metallurgy, weld inspection, pipe fitting/welding, metal fabrication and destructive and non-destructive weld testing provide students with industry-standard skills developed through classroom training and hands-on application. Successful graduates may be employed as entry-level technicians in welding and metalworking industries. Career opportunities also exist in construction, manufacturing, fabrication, sales, quality control, supervision, and welding-related self-employment. The secondary technical specialty is a minimum of 12 semester hour credits from an approved degree/diploma, or a technical education certificate program that is currently offered at the College, or mix of credits awarded for coursework from any program, military training, experiential learning, and/or testing.
