Metal fabricators turn blueprints into bridges, ships, boilers and girders. Working with welders, they turn raw steel into components for the manufacturing and transportation industries, as well as major infrastructure projects. Everything they do is built to last for generations, so they can take pride in making a lasting contribution every day they're on the job.
This program provides you with the knowledge and skills required to enter the metal fabrication and plating industry. You learn to repair metal parts and structures, fabricate components and apply safe work practices using various welding and cutting equipment and fabrication techniques. You also get experience with layout practices, blueprint reading and planning and preparing jobs.
Metal Fabrication and Welding are both two-year programs that share the same courses in the first year. Both programs offer strong apprenticeship tracks and graduates from both programs often end up working side-by-side.
