ADVANCED MANUFACTURING AND WELDING TECHNOLOGY is an industry based shop environment designed for the student who is ready to develop skills and understanding of manufacturing, welding and metal fabrication. Students will practice skills that will prepare them to further their education for industries such as building fabrication, machining, construction, foundry work, agricultural, aerospace and many more.
Students are taught safety, design, processes, light and heavy fabrication, common terms and industry expectations. Students will work on equipment commonly found in modern fabrication and manufacturing industries. This learning opportunity will provide hands-on practice and knowledge which could lead to industry certification and college credits.
Students in the program may qualify for as many as 25 Walla Walla Community College credits.
