WEL 125—Welding I 2-6-4
Demonstrations by instructor and practice by students in basic oxyacetylene and arc welding. Safe and correct methods of assembly and operation of welding equipment. Use of pedestal and hand grinders. Practice in flame cutting, gas and arc welding in flat, horizontal and vertical positions. Demonstrations and practice in basic TIG welding. Emphasis on lab techniques and safety.
WEL 135—Welding II 2-6-4
Includes demonstrations and practice of vertical and overhead welding techniques; the use of tungsten-arc inert gas (TIG) welding, demonstrations and practice of SMAW vertical and overhead. Basic welding techniques with MIG welding. Prerequisite: WEL 125
WEL 199—Welding Engineering Technology Internship 1-12-3
Students will obtain experience in the welding industry through a combination of occupational instruction and on-the-job training. This course integrates classroom occupational study with a planned supervised practical work experience. Prerequisite: Permission of instructor
WEL 207—Advanced Welding I 2-6-4
Includes the theory, application and skill development of advanced SMAW, GTAW, GMAW, FCAW, PAC and AAC processes. Skill development for the ARC welding processes will emphasize vertical and overhead “vee” groove joints and root/face bend tests of all test welds. All skill tests will follow either ASME or AWS welding code criteria. Prerequisite: WEL 135
WEL 208—Advanced Welding II 2-6-4
Covers the theory and practical use of plasma arc, automatic and semiautomatic submerged arc, flux core, MIG, TIG welding processes, carbon arc gouging and cutting. Includes demonstrations and student use of automatic welding equipment and weld positioners. Pipe welding employing MIG, TIG and SMAW processes will be employed. Demonstration and practice in resistance welding (spot welding). Root-face and side-bend tests will be passed by the student in the vertical and overhead positions and in the 6G pipe position. ASME, AWS and API code procedures are followed. Prerequisite: WEL 207
WEL 209—Welding Equipment Repair and Troubleshooting 2-2-3
Covers the operation and maintenance of welding equipment. Also includes troubleshooting welding equipment problems and use of Volt-Ohm-Meters. Prerequisite: WEL 125
WEL 220—Inspection of Code Welding 3-0-3
Specifications Includes how to read, write and interpret ASME and AWS specifications and codes for structural steel and pressure vessel welding.
WEL 221—Metal Fabrication 2-4-4
Provides students with an understanding of metal fabrication. Emphasis is placed on the proper joint selection and design, stresses in welds, material selection and estimating welding costs. Students construct projects using common metal fabrication equipment. Laboratory work includes use of welding power supplies, shears, ironworker and metal rollers. Prerequisite: DFT 110, WEL 135
WEL 223—Computer Aided Welding Design and Applications 2-2-3
Provides students with an understanding of quality weldment design. Emphasis is placed on proper joint selection and design, stresses in welds, material selection and estimating welding costs. Students develop computer programs and utilize computers to calculate weld sizes, strength of welds and estimating welding costs. Laboratory work includes designing and fabricating a welded project to be entered in the James F. Lincoln ARC Welding Foundation’s Annual Awards Program. Prerequisite: CPT 239
WEL 224—Materials Evaluation 2-2-3
Includes visual, dye penetrant, x-ray, ultrasonic, magnetic particle and destructive testing techniques. Lab practice is included. Prerequisites: MET 105 and MTH 108
WEL 240—Introduction to Automated Manufacturing 2-2-3
Provides students with an overview of the hardware and functions of industrial robotics, and hands-on training with a state-of-the-art industrial robot. Lecture topics include robot configuration, tooling, application information, safety considerations and future trends. Laboratory work allows students to create, edit and execute programs on a 5-axis, industrial robot.
