Credit: 5 hours - One lecture and eight lab hours per week.

Prerequisite(s): Gas Welding and Cutting-WEL 120


WEL 127 LOW HYDROGEN ARC WELDING

Fall/Spring

This course is a continuation of Arc Welding II and low Hydrogen-WEL 124, using the low hydrogen electrode, designed for welding high sulphur and high carbon steels. The course concentrates on flat bend tests, horizontal, vertical up-hill and down-hill welding.

Credit: 3 hours - Two lecture and two lab hours per week.

Prerequisite(s): Arc Welding II and Low Hydrogen - WEL 124


WEL 128 PIPE WELDING

Fall/Spring

This course is designed to teach up-hill and down-hill pipe welding-fixed position.

Credit: 3 hours - One lecture and four lab hours per week.

Prerequisite(s): Arc Welding II and Low Hydrogen-WEL 124 or Low Hydrogen Arc Welding-WEL 127


WEL 129 TIG WELDING

Fall/Spring

Tig welding is a gas-arc welding process using an inert gas to protect the weld zone from the atmosphere. The heat for welding is a very intense electric arc which is struck between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and work piece. Tig welding is more complex than regular arc welding. More emphasis is placed on the technology of metals. The student should be competent in arc and gas welding and have knowledge of metals, their properties and characteristics.

Credit: 2 hours - One lecture and two lab hours per week.

Prerequisite(s): Instructor Approval.


WEL 130 METAL WORKING AND FABRICATIONS

Fall/Spring/Summer

This is a course which teaches the fundamentals of working with metal, making layouts, templates, jogs, fixtures, pipe fabrications, and planning and designing projects, using both hand and power tools. The student should be competent in machine shop and welding.

Credit: 2 hours - One lecture and two lab hours per week.

Prerequisite(s): Instructor Approval.


WEL 131 BLUEPRINT READING FOR WELDING

By Request

This course covers the fundamentals of blueprint reading involving the meaning of lines, symbols, notes, and specifications as applied to industry in the area of machine and construction blueprint reading.

Credit: 3 hours - Two lecture and two lab hours per week.

Prerequisite(s): None


WEL 160 INTRODUCTION TO WELDING

Fall/Spring

Instruction is given in all position welds using arc and gas welding, cutting processes, equipment and welding safety.

Credit: 3 hours - One lecture and four lab hours per week.

Prerequisite(s): None


WEL 161 WELDING FOR HEAVY EQUIPMENT REPAIR

Fall/Spring

This course is a continuation of Arc Welding-WEL 127 using the low-hydrogen electrode, designed for welding high sulfur and high carbon steels. A study of joint geometry of oxyacetylene and arc air cutting, gouging. and deseaming is required. This course is designed to give the student a working knowledge in heavy equipment repair.

Credit: 2 hour - One lecture and two lab hours per week.

Prerequisite(s): None


WEL 163 WELDING SAFETY

Fall/Spring

The student will become familiar with safety requirements that are specified by the OSHA regulations when conducting welding, cutting, or brazing operations. Also, the student will become aware of safety procedures to be utilized when performing welding operations so personal injury to oneself or to others will not be caused.

Credit: .5 hours - .5 lecture hours per week.

Prerequisite(s): None
