Welding Technology


Welding is a high-tech industry that can take you all over the world.

From ladders to aircraft carriers, from NASCAR to national defense, and from the laboratory to sales and repair, the varied welding industry impacts virtually every industry.

Welding technology is also rapidly advancing, creating many new exciting opportunities in the workplace. New ways are being developed to bond similar materials and new alloys and other new technologies and techniques all point to an increasing need for highly trained and skilled workers.
