The Welding Program at Western Texas College focuses on practical experience and applications from business and industry. Classes are taught with a hands-on approach, giving students the opportunity for application of knowledge gained in the program and preparing students to successfully enter welding careers.

The objectives of this program are:

• To develop skills in the use of the tools of the trade so that a student may be successful in taking and passing examinations to become employed or to become a certified code welder.

• To develop knowledge and skills in reading a blueprint and the ability to follow that blueprint to design, layout, and fabrication of the desired structure.

Students may choose the two-year Associate in Applied Science Degree curriculum or one of the two one-year certificates.
