Welding Technology

Welding is a great career option for those who want a well-paying career without the cost of a four-year degree. Skilled welders are needed in many different career fields like aeronautics, automotive racing, robotics and even the military. Alamance Community College has a welding technology program designed for you to become ready to enter the workforce.

The Welding Technology curriculum provides students with a solid understanding of the science, technology, and application essential for successful careers in the welding and metal industry. We are preparing men and women to be ready for the industrial workforce through classroom and hands-on experience.

In this program, you will study:

  • Consumable and non-consumable electrode welding
  • Cutting processes
  • Blueprint reading
  • Welding Inspection
  • Welding metallurgy skills
  • Oxy-fuel welding
  • Inert gas welding

Welding is a long-used trade for many different factories and repair shops. When students complete this program, they will be ready for full-time employment as entry-level technicians in the welding and metal industry.

Five-degree options are available in welding technology. Students can pursue:

  • An Associate of Applied Science degree in Welding Technology (approximately two years of study)
  • A diploma in Welding Technology (approximately one year of study)
  • A certificate in basic welding (13 credit hours)
  • A certificate in inert gas welding (12 credit hours)
  • A certificate in oxy-fuel welding (13 credit hours)

Earning potential

  • Entry-level: $12-$15 per hour
  • With experience: $30,000-$42,000 per year

Entry-level jobs include production and assembly welding, self-employed welding, as well as fabrication. These entry-level jobs have potential to give students opportunities in becoming a supervisor, pipe welder, and an underwater welder with enough experience.
