DescriptionIn the Welding and Fabrication Technician diploma program, students will develop the broad base of knowledge and skills required for the layout, preparation, forming, fitting, joining, and inspection of welded fabrications.

Students will have the opportunity to study in the outstanding modern facilities at the Cambridge campus, where they will spend much of their time developing and applying their skills in a well-equipped, full-sized welding and fabrication shop. Students learn to follow metal fabrication projects from the computer-aided engineering drawing (CAD) stage, through the cutting and forming processes of piece parts, to the fitting, welding and inspection of fabrications. Students also have the opportunity to use conventional and computer numerical controlled (CNC) fabrication equipment programmed through the use of computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software.
