WELD 152: Welding Theory II

Class Program
Credits 3
This theory course focuses on advanced lessons in Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), and Oxy-Fuel Cutting (OFC). Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW) and Plasma Arc Cutting (PAC) are also introduced. The course will also study welding symbols, drawings, nonferrous welding applications, welding codes, specifications and tests with special emphasis on the American Welding Society (AWS) welder qualifications. In addition, a resume and mock job interview process will be required and evaluated. This class may require the need to attend field trips that include industry tours outside of the classroom. Prerequisite: WELD 151. Corequisite: WELD 154. (S)
