Welding is all about connecting things, and our Welding Technology can connect your skills with a life-long career!
Welding is in high demand right now, and earning a degree at the premier welding facility in the Midwest is the best way to get your career started fast. This program will have you ready to tackle work on pipelines, shipbuilding yards, buildings or bridges, automobile manufacturing and repair, aerospace applications, and thousands of other manufacturing activities.
Our state-of-the-art lab features 44 new Lincoln welders, an industrial size CNC plasma table, and even a robotic welder will make sure you’re more than ready when you search for welding employment. The curriculum is built with student success in mind and provides you with the ability to quickly obtain essential industry certifications.
In just two years, you’ll be prepared to test for certification as American Welding Society (AWS) SENSE Level I Entry Welders and/or AWS SENSE Level II Advanced Welders. Every instructor is an expert welder with years of experience and will make sure you’ll learn everything you need to know. This program will make you much more marketable to future employers than just a traditional welding school!
If you choose not to pursue the Welding Technology degree, there are three one-year certificate options. Articulation credit for prior welding classes will depend on documentation provided by your high school or area career center.
We believe time-on-task has to be part of your education. That means time spent learning from experienced instructors in real-world environments and real-world situations. That’s why the State Tech campus is home to more than 50 labs, an automotive bay, aviation hangar, and 40+ acres of land dedicated to our heavy equipment operations program.
