WELD 120 - Advanced Processes - Stick Electrode and M.I.G. Welding

Credits: 3
Lecture Contact Hours: 2
Lab Contact Hours: 2
Description: The student will gain additional knowledge and experience in both shielded metal and gas metal arc welding. Welding will be performed in all positions; flat, horizontal, vertical and overhead. The class will introduce the student to pipe cutting and pipe welding on heavy sections. Material will be formed and fabricated using power and hand operated tools and equipment. Students will produce several required projects that will simulate weld joints found in today’s modern manufacturing and construction industry.
