The Department of Industrial Technology is proud to announce the latest educational opportunity available to our students. Starting with the Fall 2013 semester, we will be able to offer welding certification to American Welding Society (AWS) standards as part of our welding program. In the first welding course, IT 2307 Welding Technology, students are introduced to oxygen/acetylene welding and cutting, and then progress to traditional arc welding. Additional courses for those who wish to achieve a greater skill level and certification are in development and will be available Fall 2014. Safety equipment for students is available in the labs. Students may bring their own safety equipment should they so desire, but the equipment will be inspected by the instructor prior to use.
