Welding and fabrication is a rewarding career for men and women who enjoy challenges and like to work with their hands. Our graduates find employment in positions including production welder, fabricator, pipe welder, and more.

LBCC’s Associate of Applied Sciences degree curriculum includes training with all of the commonly-used welding and cutting processes. This includes Stick (SMAW), TIG, wire-feed welding, oxy-fuel cutting, and plasma arc cutting. You’ll also receive training in blueprint reading, layout, fabrication skills, structural welding, and pipe welding, along with many other welding-related subject areas.
