Welding Technology – A.A.S.

PROGRAM INFORMATION: The AAS degree in Welding Technology is an expansion of the Welding Certificate initiated in 2009. The AAS degree is designed to enhance knowledge and skills, as well as provide opportunities for students wishing to go on to pursue a four-year BAAS degree in related fields. This program will prepare students for Welding careers in general fabrication shops, construction, and pipe welding by providing instruction and hands-on experience in welding layout, and fitting skills. Welding practices and principles will guide students in multiple welding processes. Students will develop a strong working knowledge of all arc welding processes, and proficiency in oxy/fuel and plasma torch cutting processes. The NCCER Core and Welding Curricula is built into the program curriculum allowing the students the opportunity to attain several nationally recognized certifications through NCCER during the course of study.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The Navarro College Welding Program is offered at the Corsicana campus. In addition, dual credit is available to high school students participating in Welding programs at eligible high schools in the Navarro College service area. For additional information contact the Dean of Business, Professional and Technical at 903-875-7572.
