The welding industry today presents continually growing opportunities, high pay, and travel opportunities for skilled workers throughout the world. Here are 7 Incredible Facts about Welding in today’s world.

The first year of the program introduces the student to the fundamentals of SMAW, GTAW and GMAW along with many other welding processes. Instruction also includes print reading, Solid Works and the hands-on use of small hand and power tools in the field of metal fabrication.

In the second year of the program students learn about the fine art of metallurgy and gain more in depth knowledge in all mid level to advanced welding processes.

Qualified students will have the opportunity to take a test for welding certifications and participate for co-op placements with instructor approval.


The Welding and Metal Fabrication Program trains students in the recognition of metals as well as the proper procedures of welding. Instruction includes electric arc, oxyacetylene and tungsten inert gas welding, as well as metal cutting and brazing.


Instruction also includes safety, care and use of small hand and power tools.


The second year of this program is a continuation of Welding and Metal Fabrication I. Students are encouraged to design and  build their own projects such as go-carts, tools, trailers, etc.  Qualified students are placed in related jobs through the Cooperative Education Work Experience Program Qualified students may earn advanced standing at the Baran Institute of Technology. For second year students, extend studies in BTC Studio B! Rapid prototyping, 3D design and modeling and interdisciplinary projects can be part of the overall design experience.
