Welding Technology is a two-year program that includes both theoretical and practical training in basic and advanced welding techniques. Areas covered include shield metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, pipe welding, and fabrication.
Welding has become a very sophisticated and technical science that requires mental application as well as hands-on abilities. Students who complete the Associate in Applied Science degree learn welding skills, but also basic math, English, and other communication skills. CBC's welding training, plus general education requirements, prepare graduates for careers in today's construction trades and fabrications shops.
The program requires students achieve a minimum grade of 2.0 to be able to continue enrollment in major courses. The AAS degree also requires a minimum grade of 2.0 for each major course. A student who achieves a grade of 1.9 or lower in any required major course may repeat that course once to attempt to achieve a grade of 2.0 or higher. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the dean of the program prior to enrollment and must be based on extenuating circumstances.
