Welding and Metal Fabrication

Welders and sheet metal fabricators are in high demand globally. The Welding and Metal Fabrication program teaches students the skills and techniques necessary for success in a field that values well-trained, experienced workers. 

Upon completion of the program, students are prepared to enter the workforce or go on for more advanced training at specialized technical schools or college. Career information can be found at the American Welding Society website
