Welding

The Anoka Technical College Welding Technology program currently offers two Welding certificates, a diploma and an associate in applied science (AAS) degree program specifically designed to develop exceptional welding skills utilizing the major welding processes that are vital to industry.

The associate in applied science (AAS) degree consists of  the Basic certificate, the Welding Technology diploma and Fabricator certificate and 15 general education credits.

The Anoka Technical College associate in applied science (AAS) degree in Welding is a 66-credit program designed for individuals seeking a well-rounded welding background.

The Welding program consists of technical courses, specifically designed to develop exceptional welding skills utilizing the major welding processes that are vital to industry. The technical courses are broken out into semester-long certificates to provide quick access into a welding career:

Semester 1: Basic Welding certificate (17 Credits)
Semester 2: Welding Technology diploma (17 Credits in addition to 17 credits from Basic Welding certificate)
Semester 3: Fabricator certificate   (17 Credits in addition to 17 credits from Basic Welding certificate and 17 credits from Welding Technology diploma )

The degree program also offers a balance of general education courses to complement the welding courses and to provide students with opportunity to capitalize on a broad-based welding education.

Industry Information

The diversification of the welding industry impacts virtually every industry around the globe. From the depth of the world’s oceans to the far-reaching corners of outer space, there is a welding position for every hardworking, ambitious, smart individual who is ready and willing to constantly improve and striving for excellence.

A career choice in welding offers a vast array of options for employment and continuing personal development. Welding is the most common way to permanently join metal parts. Heat is applied to the pieces that are being joined; melting and fusing them together which forms a permanent bond.

Therefore, welding plays a key role in industry production lines, laboratories, research and development, national defense, sales and service, NASCAR and drag racing, custom motorcycle building, artwork, sculptures, pipelines, power plants, refineries, construction, maintenance, repair and much more.

Wage/Outlook/Advancement

Welders and solderers can advance to more skilled jobs with additional training and experience. For example, experienced welders may become technicians, supervisors, inspectors, or instructors. Other experienced welders and solderers open their own repair shops.

Wage information is available from the Minnesota Department of Education and the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development.
