Welding Technology

Program Overview

The welding technology program at Allan Hancock College is a great way to start your career in the challenging, dynamic and adaptive field of welding and metalworking. In the industry, welding professionals continuously apply new knowledge and scientific principles to a form of fabrication that is sometimes described more as an art than as a craft. There are a vast number of opportunities available to job seekers in mainstream welding and various auxiliary fields. 

Curriculum:

Our curriculum covers everything from basic to advanced welding to metal fabrication and pipe welding. Safety protocols are strongly emphasized with more advanced welding techniques such as hand cutting and semiautomatic cutting being taught upon the foundation of safety. Metalworking as it is used in the arts i.e. sculpture, ornamental iron, blacksmithing and garden art are also offered.

Our program provides training in essential manipulative skills and technical knowledge in the areas of:

  • Oxyacetylene welding
  • Brass brazing
  • Flame cutting
  • Electric arc processes:
    • Shielded metal arc welding
    • Gas metal arc (G.M.A.W.) welding
    • Gas tungsten arc (T.I.G.) welding
  • Ferrous and non-ferrous metals
  • Blacksmithing

The associate degree and certificate curriculum in welding technology is designed to provide comprehensive occupational training in all common types of welding methods as related to today's welding fabrication industries. Upon degree/certificate completion you will have mastered the techniques used in modern welding and metalwork.

Certification tests may be taken as part of your certificate/degree completion.
