Welding Technology students will learn to design, fabricate, and repair various items made from metal. The students will learn the skills necessary to safely perform SMAW (shielded metal arc welding), GMAW (gas metal arc welding), FCAW (flux core arc welding), GTAW (gas tungsten arc welding), OFC (oxyfuel cutting), PAC (plasma arc cutting), and ACAC (air carbon arc cutting).
