Welding Technology

Industrial Technology Division

WELD-06 FUNDAMENTALS OF OXY-FUEL WELDING AND SHIELDED METAL ARC WELDING (Also: MECH-06)
3 units: 2 hour lecture, 3 hours lab.
Advisories: ENGL-81, ENGL-84; MATH-80 or MATH-83.
This course emphasizes the development of minimum skill standards in welding. The SMAW (shielded metal arc welding), OFW (oxyfuel welding) and OFC (oxyfuel cutting) processes are covered as prescribed in the AWS QC 10 specifications. The qualification and certification standards for entry-level welders as established by the American Welding Society will be covered. (2/00)
