Welding Technology AAS

The welding programs at Texas State Technical College emphasize the development of real, hands-on welding, layout and fitting skills. With extensive exposure to welding practices and principles, students can better understand not only how welding processes work, but also why certain welding processes are used. In addition to 180 ventilated arc welding stations and 20 oxy-acetylene stations, Welding Technology offers Combination Welding students instruction on plasma torches for oxy-acetylene and air carbon arc cutting. Students also gain extensive skills and knowledge through simulated industrial welder qualification tests with the following processes: SMAW, GMAW, FCAW (gas and self-shielded), GTAW and SAW.

The five-semester Welding Technology Associate Degree program is designed to develop the skills of the major welding processes as well as the technical study of metals. In addition to the welding processes the student will have courses in general psychology, college algebra, composition, humanities, academic elective, job planning and layout, welding symbols and blueprint reading, introduction to metallurgy, welding metallurgy, two courses of nondestructive testing methods, and automated and robotic welding applications. Upon graduation the student will receive an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Welding Technology.
