Welding (One Year) Diploma


Hutchinson and Willmar (34 Credits) - Education Plan

Welding is the process of joining metals through heat. The industrial welding program on the Willmar campus is different from other programs because it offers either a one-year completion or a two-year advanced technical welding education.
Shop equipment is the type found in industry and classroom instruction and is related directly to shop work.
The Hutchinson campus has the only welding program in the state with in-house x-ray.
Using this quality control inspection method, students always have feedback on the quality of their welds.
Both programs give students broad and continuous exposure to welding methods and equipment. A certificate option is also available.
