Welding Technology

The Blinn College District Welding Technology 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), Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW), basic metallurgy, and inspection procedures based on industry welding codes.

College credit programs build upon each other and include Level I and Level II certificates 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 Agriculture and Workforce Education Complex in Bryan and the A.W. Hodde, Jr., Technical Education Center in Brenham.

All welding processes are taught in accordance with welding codes established by the American Welding Society.

Program Highlights

Students who successfully complete the 60-hour Welding Technology AAS degree can earn the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) credential, a nationally recognized credential that qualifies students for jobs across the nation. Program graduates are qualified for jobs as structural welders, pipe welders, and maintenance welders. Welding certifications are offered through employers and based on an employers specific test.
