This Machining for Welders certificate provides students with entry level machining and technology skills. Students learn about the hazards of a machine shop including safety procedures, use of various tools related to the machine shop, and practical metallurgy Additionally, students learn how to interpret weld symbols on blueprints, identify proper layout methods and tools, and proper joint design necessary for various welding processes.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the Machining for Welders certificate program, students should be able to:

  • Read and interpret welding blueprints using current drawing standards in dimensioning, symbology, linetypes, lineweights, drawing notes for working drawings, engineering assembly and design related manufacturing drawings (e.g., weld symbols, joint designs)
  • Perform basic lathe operations (e.g., shaping, drilling, sanding, knurling, turning, cutting, and deformation)
  • Operate a vertical milling machine (e.g., reaming, drilling, boring) within required tolerances
  • Explain changes in metallurgical characteristics during heating, cooling, shaping, and forming
