• Welding Technology

    Associate of Applied Science Degree

    This program prepares students for entry into these industries: fabricated structural metal products, motor vehicles and equipment, construction and heavy construction, transportation equipment, ship and boat building and repair, aircraft and parts, self-employment and miscellaneous fabricated metal products.

    CCC’s welding instructors are American Welding Society (AWS) certified professionals. The program’s curriculum is based on the AWS national standard for entry level welders.

    Course work focuses on the knowledge and skills to perform:

    • Fillet welds and groove welds using:
      • Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW)
      • Gas-metal arc welding (GMAW)
      • Flux-core arc welding (FCAW)
      • Gas-tungsten arc welding (GTAW)
      • Steel, stainless steel and aluminum
      • A variety of different electrodes
       
    • Plasma arc cutting (PAC), air carbon arc cutting (CAC-A) and gouging, manual and automatic oxy-fuel cutting (OFC and OFC-Track Burner) processes
    • Knowledge of materials science and welding theory
    • Print reading, inspection, quality, safety and shop practices
    • Fabrication techniques, including job cost calculations, layout, sketching, bills of material, fitting and cutting welding applied to real projects designed by industry partners

    Program Outcomes

    Program outcomes include the skills necessary for entrylevel employment in large, medium and small employers in the industries listed above as trained welders, flame and plasma cutters, fabricators, fitters and welding machine operators. Welders can advance to more skilled jobs with additional training and experience, such as technicians, supervisors, inspectors or instructors.

    Careers

    Career opportunities include welding, fabrication, construction, production welding, CNC cutting machine operation and sheet metal.

    Short-term Training

    For students who need a quick-entry strategy into the work force, an individualized education and employment plan can be created that concentrates the knowledge and skills necessary to start or change a career path. Please see a faculty advisor for more information.
