After completing the Welding and Fabrication Technology program, students will be prepared to read and interpret diagrams, sketches and blueprints to determine operations and required materials for projects. Generally, graduates of the program will move on to entry-level positions in welding repair, fabrication, industrial mechanics, and pipefitting.
