According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment of welders and cutters is expected to grow 15 percent from 2010 to 2020. Make some sparks! Join the innovative people who are creating the products of tomorrow!
Based on American Welding Society skill standards, ASU Mid-South’s Welding technology program provides theory and practical skills application in welding and cutting. You can develop skills in arc welding, plasma and air carbon arc cutting, and oxyacetylene, TIG, MIG, and gas metal and flux-core arc welding. In the process, you will also learn welding inspection testing principles and fabrication techniques. If you are looking for a 9-5 job pushing paper behind a desk, this program is NOT for you. But if you like the idea of putting things together or cutting them in two, you should give this a try. Small, medium, and large facilities throughout the Mid-South are in desperate need of entry-level welders, and this program will give you the training you need to find a quality job.
ASU Mid-South offers degree and certificate programs to meet student and community needs. Program courses address general education knowledge as well as behaviors needed for good citizenship and successful careers. Goals and course objectives are listed in the colleges catalog under Academic Programs to inform students so that they can better relate their college studies to their personal educational and career goals.
*Welding Certificates and Certification: Welding classes are offered day and night, with certificate programs in Shielded Metal Arc Welding (Stick), Gas Metal Arc Welding (MIG), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (TIG), and Flux Core Arc Welding. Each program offers AWS certifications, which are highly recognized by companies across the world.For more information about Mechatronics at ASU Mid-South or how to register, contact the Admissions Office at 870.733.6728 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
