About This Program

In addition to operating welding equipment, welders assemble metal parts or products, align parts or workpieces to ensure proper assembly, lay out parts to prepare for assembly, measure dimensions, and read blueprints. The ASUMH Welding Program introduces students to the skills needed for a variety of positions within the field of welding. All students receive beginning instruction in shielded metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, and gas tungsten arc welding.
Gas Tungsten Arc Welding or TIG Welding stands for Tungsten Inert Gas and is a technique that’s known for using a non-consumable tungsten electrode along with an inert gas (usually argon). Tungsten is a rare, hard element that offers a high purity, high-quality weld.

TIG welding is the most popular welding technique used today because it offers a high degree of purity, a clean weld and it can be used in many industrial, residential and commercial applications. TIG is most commonly used to weld stainless steel together, although other metals like magnesium, aluminum, copper and nickel can be welded using TIG.

TIG Welding is highly popular in industries that work with nonferrous metals and it is commonly used in the manufacturing of vehicles, tubing, bicycles, as well as the maintenance and repair of tools and dies made of aluminum, magnesium and stainless steel and it is the preferred technique by engineers who demand a high degree of precision on their welds.

Not sure you are ready to commit to a degree?  ASUMH offers a technical certificate program and two certificates of proficiency in welding technology or gas metal arc welding.

Still in high school? Welding is one of the programs offered through the ASUMH Secondary Center. That means you can start taking classes before graduating from high school. Contact your counselor or ASUMH for more information!

DEGREE CHECKLIST
Transferable Degrees & Stackable Credentials
Transferrable degrees are programs of study that allow students to complete general education courses. Many students who intend to transfer to another college/university complete these degree programs.
Stackable Credentials are Technical Certificates that might be “stacked” to meet requirements for a higher-level certificate or degree program like an associate's degree.
