Welding & Fabrication
Instructor: Adam Hipple
This course is designed for students who are ready to challenge themselves and become the welders and metal fabricators of tomorrow. Various welding and cutting processes are taught throughout the year and students will demonstrate these skills through hands-on activities in the shop.
Several class projects, both individual and group, are done throughout each quarter which coincide with class lectures. Personal projects are welcomed once students have finished their assigned welding tasks. Production strategies and lean manufacturing skills are demonstrated, giving the students a taste of the real-world and what makes a successful business.
First year students are challenged in flat and horizontal welding positions while second year students learn how to weld in the vertical and overhead positions. Employability, which emphasizes their professional conduct, is a significant portion of the student’s grade. (13207A001 & 002)
