MATS 1000 A course for students enrolling in the Welding program. Topics include operations with whole numbers, fractions, decimals and percents; metric system and unit conversions; perimeter, area and volume of regular and composite shapes; angular measurements; bends, stretchouts, economical layout and takeoffs. Prerequisites: None.
This course DOES NOT meet any requirements of the Transfer Curriculum: it does not meet the general education requirements for A.A.S. degree students and is not a substitute for general electives.
WELD 1101 This course will give the student a basic introduction to welding and cover basic safety for the welding trade. Theory for Shielded Metal, Gas Metal, Flux Cored, and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding Processes. Theory for Oxygen Fuel, Plasma Arc, and Carbon Arc Cutting/Gouging processes. Also covered is visual inspection and quality standards. Prerequisites: None
WELD 1111 This course develops the welding skills necessary for the Shield Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) process on carbon steel plate in flat and horizontal positions. IN addition, students develop skills in manual and mechanized Oxygen Fuel Cutting (OFC).
WELD 1120 This course develops the welding skills necessary for the Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) process on carbon steel plate in flat and horizontal positions to be performed in short circuiting and spray arc transfer.
WELD 1140 This course develops the welding skills necessary for the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) process on mild steel sheet and plate in the flat and horizontal positions to include Plasma Arc Cutting (PAC)
WELD 1150 In this course students learn to interpret drawings related to the manufacture of metal products from simple single part drawings to more complex multi-part drawings. Students learn welding symbols, drawing symbols, material specifications, and basic fabrication methods used on blueprint drawings.
INTS 1010 This course is designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of planning and organizing job search strategies. Emphasis is placed on identification of individual goals, assessment of talents, exploration of career options, analysis of the job market, effective use of employment search tools (e.g. resume, cover letters, interviewing, networking), and management of career pathways.
WELD 1200 Students in this course will demonstrate the use of the American Welding Society (AWS) welding symbol to industry standards. Students will interpret joint design from welding symbols and learn forming and cutting processes shown on engineering drawings. Classification of base materials and wire will be emphasized. Prerequisites: Print Reading I
WELD 1210 Upon completion of this course, students will understand metallurgy as it pertains to base metal and its alloying elements. Students will understand basic safety practices associated within the welding industry and will learn about advanced welding processes and cutting technology. Students will interpret code specifications with testing and inspection gauges. Prerequisites: Welding Safety and Theory I
WELD 1230 This course develops the welding skills necessary for the Shield Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) process on carbon steel plate in vertical and overhead positions. Prerequisites: WELD 1101, WELD 1111, and Corequisite WELD1210
WELD 1240 This course develops the welding skills necessary for the Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) process on carbon steel plate, aluminum, and stainless steel. Welds are performed in flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead positions in short circuiting, spray arc transfer, and pulse mode. Prerequisites: WELD 1101 & WELD 1120 Corequisite WELD1210
WELD 1250 This course develops the welding skills necessary for the Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW) process on carbon steel plate in vertical and overhead positions. Prerequisites: WELD 1101& 1130; Corequisite WELD1210
WELD 1260 This course will develop the skills necessary for the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) process on aluminum and stainless steel sheet and plate in the flat, horizontal, and vertical up positions. Prerequisites: WELD1120 Gas Tungsten Arc Welding I, WELD 1101 Welding Safety and Theory I and must be taken at the same time as WELD 1210 Welding Safety and Theory II
