WELDING TECHNOLOGY Welding Technology is the application of the art and science of joining metals. Welding technologists have important roles in the fabrication and construction of nuclear and fossil fuel power plants, heavy equipment, agricultural machinery, petro-chemical plants, bridges, buildings, floating and underwater vessels, automobiles, appliances, and projects for national security. Specifically anything involving metals, from miniature electronic devices to sophisticated space projects, will require the skills of the expert welding technologist. These highly skilled members of the technological team apply practical working knowledge of welding processes, welding metallurgy and welding code standards in solving problems of welding design and production. The OCC Welding Department is licensed to qualify (certify) welders to code standards. All qualification training and tests are prescribed and follow the guide of the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) codes requirements.

Students also completing the required general education requirements and electives may earn the Associate in Science degree. In addition, many OCC welding courses are transferable and can be used by those students who are interested in the welding engineering degree program at Ohio State University. Whatever the case, a person’s chances for the job of their choice are much higher when they have the technical background as evidenced by earning our Certificate of Achievement in welding. Students are required to obtain a grade of “C” or better in all required courses. Complete the Welding Certificate of Achievement and the Associate in Science graduation requirements as outlined in the Graduation Requirements section of the catalog. Program Outcomes Acquire the necessary skills training for proficiency in taking a welding qualification test for certification which may be required for employment. 2.
