The second topic reviews proper application and use of hand, measuring and power tools used for welding and metal fabrication. The third topic will develop mathematical skills necessary for trade calculations in the welding industry.
    Hours: 33
    Credits: 2

    WELD1310     Welding & Fabrication Quality I
    Description: Welding quality will be studied from a perspective of defect identification and reviewing cause, effect and corrective actions for various defects. In addition, causes and control methods for warpage and distortion in welded fabrication will also be reviewed.
    Hours: 27
    Credits: 2

    WELD1320     Welding Theory I

    Description: The major welding processes will be studied in this course with emphasis on learning the effect, set-up and control of the main welding variables. This knowledge will then be used to assist in developing welding skills in accompanying practical courses. Processes to be studied include Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW), Metal Cored Arc Welding (MCAW) and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW).
