Program Information

School:Northern College of Applied Arts & Technology
Faculty:School of Welding Engineering and Technology
Degree:Diploma
Field of Study:Welding Technology/Welder
Description:The School of Welding Engineering Technology provides a very unique blend of practical skills and theoretical knowledge which permit graduates to perform exceptionally well as active members of the engineering team. Their background in science and technology related to welding allows them to interact with engineers and scientists while maintaining the practical skills necessary to supervise trade personnel. Technicians often select components, create or interpret drawings and supervise welding personnel.

Welding professionals are concerned with all activities related to the design, production, performance and maintenance of welded products. To adequately design a weldment, the welding professional must not only understand the material being joined, but also the effect of welding variables of many welding processes on the final product. To achieve this, lab time is intertwined with a curriculum of metallurgical science and engineering theory. In developing the skills required in becoming a welding inspector, students complement their knowledge of nondestructive examination with a working knowledge of codes, standards and stress analysis.
