The Welding and Fabrication Techniques program provides a comprehensive theoretical base and extensive hands-on training in all major welding processes. Emphasis is placed on the selection and application of welding processes to specific situations, the development of appropriate welding techniques and attention to detail, and the troubleshooting of welding equipment. The opportunity for Canadian Welding Bureau certification is also made available to students who meet program expectations.
Employment opportunities in welding and fabrication are wide ranging and exist in any industry where metal fabrication and maintenance are performed including steel fabrication, manufacturing, construction, mining, pipe line construction, and shipbuilding. Program content also prepares the graduate for further technician-level study in this field and meets Welder Level 1 and 2 apprenticeship learning outcomes.
