Welding is the most common way of permanently joining metal parts. Through welding, heat is applied to metal pieces, melting and fusing them to form a permanent bond. There are a variety of welding processes including stick, MIG and TIG. The Industrial Welding core curriculum at Kellogg Community College prepares students to weld a variety of metals in various positions using each of these processes. Students may pursue either a Certificate or an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Industrial Welding.
Modules within the curriculum cover:
- Advanced Arc Welding
- Brazing and Soldering
- Cutting Processes
- Gas Metal Arc Welding
- Gas Tungsten Arc Welding
- Oxyacetylene Welding
- Pipe Welding
- Shielded Metal Arc Welding
- Special Applications/Fabrication
- Welding Metallurgy
In order to earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Industrial Welding students must complete sixty (60) credits. These credits must be taken from three categories: core curriculum, general education electives, and technical electives.
Industrial Trades curricula are offered in a non-traditional, modular format. Module descriptions are not listed in the catalog.
