Industrial Welding Skills

Overview

The Industrial Welding Skills program is designed to train students on work like environment to become highly skilled and work ready welders. The curriculum is a Competency based which helps students to build their skills progres­sively on various welding processes such as Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW) and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW). Welding Simulators are available in the facility but used only for beginner students to understand the effect of the five essentials in welding

Students also trained to inspect the quality of the weld by Destructive Tests (DT) and Non-Destructive Tests (NDT) methods. Inside the workshop of welding, there is a Quality Center which has all the equipment needed for inspection and testing such as; Tensile test, Compression, Bending, Ultrasonic Test, Dye Penetrants and Magnetic particles.

Classrooms are furnished with teaching aids to ac­celerate the learning of essential knowledge like welding symbols, weldability of metals and welding processes. Each workshop has twenty booths equipped with all necessary equipment, tools and safety measures. Students are re­quired to understand and perform the setting up of ma­chines and all its attachments for welding stainless steels, carbon steels and aluminum.

 

Career Opportunities

After successfully completing the training period, the graduate will be qualified for one of the following jobs:

  •  Welder
  •  NDT Technician
  •  Welder and Maintenance Technician
  •  Pipe Welding Technician
