Students in Metal Fabrication

The Metal Fabrication and Welding program is designed to train and develop students to become skilled fabricators, welders, and sheet metal workers. Instruction includes a complete range of skilled areas from small business ownership, to computer generated plasma cutting machines to sheet metal duct work, to copper roofing and gutter work to creative blacksmithing and certified welding.

Since welding is the core of our program students can expect to learn all facets of welding in structural steel construction, heavy earth moving equipment repair, pipe-line welding to modern day welding of robotics in manufacturing. In addition, students can continue their education with technical metal working skills at two and four year colleges with areas of studies such as: metallurgy, structural and mechanical engineering and metal art.
