LANSING COMMUNITY COLLEGE

 

CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Welding Technology

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0186  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

Welding is many processes of fusion, adhesion and cutting to fabricate or repair products used in manufacturing, research and application.  A welding technician could also qualify for welding inspection where welding codes are applied.  A welder is a skilled craftsperson with a basic knowledge of metals, applied mathematics, blueprint reading, good eyesight, self-discipline and a respect for safety.  A welder also needs to work well with his/her hands and have good manual coordination.  Many hours of practice and proper training in the basics of MIG, TIG, shielded metal arc, brazing and oxy-fuel cutting and plasma cutting are necessary.  Welders can be found in tool and die industries, auto makers, construction, oil refineries, pipelines and pressure vessels, aircraft industries and many more metal-related industries.  Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

 

PREREQUISITES
Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for skills assessment and advising information.
