Welding Technology

Schoolcraft’s welding program provides students with both hands-on welding skills and knowledge of metallurgy and other materials. The program offers three welding certificates in addition to an associate degree in applied science. Class sizes are limited so instructors can work closely with students to provide hands-on training and relay knowledge of analytical skills required by modern industrial technology.

  • The welding fabrication certificate prepares students for jobs involving metal inert gas and tungsten inert gas welding, as well as providing knowledge of plasma, arc and oxy-gas cutting technologies.
  • Schoolcraft’s welding joining technology associate in applied science degree prepares students for a job in industrial, prototype and machine tool building, heavy equipment, construction and emerging green and sustainable technologies.
  • The welding pre-apprenticeship certificate, through a partnership with local trade unions, will help ensure that students have the skills, knowledge and training necessary to be safe on the jobsite, competitive in the workplace and satisfied in their careers.
  • The welding sculpture skills certificate helps professional sculptures and aspiring welders gain knowledge and skills applicable in today’s art world and welding industry.
