Welding Technology, Associate of Applied Science
Curriculum Code #6410
Effective May 2023
The welding technology program is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills and behaviors necessary for the competent performance as a welding technician. The welding technician is the liaison between the welding engineer and the welder. The program is based on the occupational analyses and needs of the maintenance and fabrication welding industries. Employment opportunities exist in a variety of industries such as steel, construction, fabrication, pipelines, and others. Students who excel in the program may be qualified to take certain welding certification tests. Lorain County Community College has articulation agreements with colleges and universities including programs offered by Lorain County Community College’s University Partnership.
