Welding

The Blinn College District’s Welding Program offers competency-based training in welding technology for students pursuing college credit or participating in continuing education. The hands-on, skills development curriculum includes entry level to advanced levels in a variety of welding processes such as Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), basic metallurgy and inspection procedures based on industry welding codes.

College credit programs build upon each other and include a Certificate I, Certificate II, and an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in welding technologies. With the credit program, technique coursework is interwoven with blueprint reading, quality control and inspection, and hands-on experience provided through internships.

Blinn offers credit and non-credit welding courses at the new RELLIS Campus Agricultural and Workforce Education Complex, now under construction. These credit and non-credit welding courses are also available at the A.W. Hodde, Jr., Technical Education Center in Brenham, and on the Schulenburg Campus.
