Welding Technology      

Welding Technology

Jamestown Campus

Discover welding. Ignite new personal and career possibilities! From skyscrapers to Nascar to nuclear containment vessels, welding shapes lives and communities every day.  In fact, half of our nation’s total gross national product includes welding work, products, and services of some kind. There is currently a skilled welder shortage equating to great job security. Amazing, right?

You might also be surprised to discover that a career in welding is very different than you think.  These roles are dynamic and challenging. They offer you rewarding opportunities to harness new knowledge; develop craftsmanship; learn scientific principles; and be exposed to today’s most advanced technologies.

Welding technology has changed dramatically. It is high-tech and high skilled. Many younger, technology-geared students are drawn to welding worksites where teams frequently work with lasers, robotics, computer programming, and other complex technologies. In addition to welders, many other professional-level experts are needed from certified inspectors and engineers to specialized sales teams.

Beginning in the fall of 2018, welding technology courses will be held in the new GTCC Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CAM). For more information on CAM, click here
