Associate of Applied Science Degree
Sioux City Campus

Program Description

This program, the Associate of Applied Science in Welding Technology, prepares students for a career in the manufacturing, fabrication, and structural steel industries. The program includes hands-on application of SMAW, GMAW, Oxy Fuel, FCAW, GTAW and Robotic Weld processes, using ferrous and non-ferrous metals, and evaluated to AWS D1.1 structural steel code or other codes (ASME sect. IX, API 1104, etc.) as appropriate. The program’s curriculum is aligned to AWS national standards for entry level welders and includes safety, blueprint reading, and welding procedure specifications. Upon successful completion of all competencies, students will have the opportunity to test for numerous AWS and ASME certifications. Students may incur additional fees for testing for these certifications.
