Welding is an important industrial skill with applications in agriculture, mining, transportation, aviation, oil and gas, and construction. Training ranges from welding basics to advanced pipe and metal plate fabrication.

Classes are small to offer hands-on training and maximum interaction between the student and instructor. Students may request credit by examination for any WMT class. Advanced students may work toward American Welding Society certification or pursue advanced projects. Contact the department for details.
