Welding Technology Program

Our Welding program provides tremendous opportunities in new welding development like exotic metal types, laser welding, and working with automated plasma cutters.

Welding is the most common method for permanently bonding metal parts. Due to its strength, welding is used to construct and repair cars, appliances, buildings, highway bridges, and it is extensively used in petrol-chemical piping.

Skilled welders work from drawings and specifications, set up and create welds, and examine and inspect welds to ensure specifications are met.  Program emphasis is on processes including SMAW, GTAW, GMAW, and structural and pipe welding.  Cowley College provides well-equipped laboratories that enable students to receive instruction in oxyacetylene welding and cutting, shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW), gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), metallurgy, plasma cam cutting and allied processes.

We'd really like to show you our facilities and talk about our Welding Technology Program.
