The welding industry governs various metal joining processes. It is the most common method for permanently
joining the sections necessary for building and maintaining petrochemical industry units, pipeline,
marine vessels, bridge structures, and many other industrial components.
The student is instructed in the safe and efficient techniques used in modern welding applications. Students’
skills and knowledge are regularly tested with methods common to industry in order to determine operator and
procedure quality. Welding test qualification assistance is included.
The Welding Technology program that is offered by the Institute of Technology is designed to prepare
the student for a career in the areas of industrial and construction welding, either as a competent welding
or in a position which requires knowledge of welding, welding equipment, or supplies.
Upon successful completion of the respective programs of study, the student will be awarded a Certificate
and/or Associate of Applied Science degree. Job placement assistance is available through the Institute Placement
Lamar InstitLamar Institute of Technology also requires students to register for the College Success Skills Course in their first semester.
The course is designed to provide students with a thorough orientation to the campus, postsecondary education, and the classroom skills necessary for success.
Students with a thorough orientation to the campus, postsecondary education, and the classroom skills necessary for success. Students must earn a 'C' or better in all cources in the degree plan.
