Program Information

School:Northern College of Applied Arts & Technology
Faculty:School of Welding Engineering and Technology
Field of Study:Welding Technology/Welder
Description:The first two years (4 semesters) of the two year welding engineering technician program is identical to that of the three year welding engineering technology program. However, students specializing in welding technology continue their studies for one more year and receive greater depth of training and knowledge in welding processes, welding metallurgy, welding physics, failure analysis and welding circuits.

Welding Engineering Technologists have the same skill set as welding engineering technicians; however, with their greater knowledge of metallurgy, processes and engineering principles, they are best suited for the development of welding procedures. In the development of welding procedures, technologists will often select suitable materials and welding processes in conjunction with selection of welding variables to ensure a cost effective weld with adequate structural integrity and adherence to applicable code requirements.
