Code 250 - 60 Credits
High-pressure and low-pressure piping systems are used in manufacturing, in the generation of electricity, and in the heating and cooling of buildings. Many of these systems are regulated by automatic controls, which may be accessed remotely. The Industrial Pipefitting core curriculum at Kellogg Community College prepares students to install, maintain, and repair these systems. Students may pursue either a Certificate or an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Industrial Pipefitting.
Modules within the curriculum cover:
- Blueprint Reading
- Compressed Air
- Fire Protection
- Flow Control
- Introduction to Pipefitting
- Mathematics for Pipefitting
- Pipefitting Science
- Piping Maintenance
- Thermodynamics of Heat
In order to earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Industrial Pipefitting students must complete sixty (60) credits. These credits must be taken from three categories: core curriculum, general education electives, and technical electives.
Students who obtain an Associate degree or an Associate of Applied Science degree will be required to complete a service-learning experience. The final grade in the course must qualify for academic credit in order to receive the service-learning endorsement. Please contact an Academic Advisor for courses that offer a service-learning experience, or search in the class schedules.
Industrial Trades curricula are offered in a non-traditional, modular format. Module descriptions are not listed in the catalog.
