Welding Technology


The Welding program provides the basic techniques of welding processes common in the industry. To prepare for rewarding job opportunities, the student learns specific operations such as flame cutting, grinding, metal preparation, the use of tools and equipment related to welding combined with instruction in related math, physical properties of metal, effects of heat, thickness allowances, shrinkage, basic joint design, layout, blueprint reading, and fabrication. Practical work experience prepares the student in the safe use of modern equipment while emphasizing the four basic positions of welding: flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead. This program is located at the main campus at 355 Scott High Drive, Huntsville, Tennessee.
