Intro. To Welding Syllabus

 

Course Description:

The Welding course will provide students with an introduction into the welding

field. The practical experiences in the shop are designed to broadly qualify the

student for employment in the construction and repair industry and the boat

building and repair industry. Students are trained in the use of the oxy-acetylene

process, which includes metal cutting, welding, brazing and soldering. The

various types of arc welding such as shielded metal ARC (SMAW) metal inert gas

(MIG) and tungsten inert gas (TIG) are taught in depth.

 

  

Course Objective:

Students in this course will be taught how weld in the above process and will be

able to enter the welding field with skills

needed to achieve their goals. They will

explore welding as a career and participate in the integration of academics,

vocational, evaluation, technology and social skills required of becoming a welder.

 

Course Requirements:

Course activities and projects required for successful completion of the course

includes meeting Cape Tech requirements, technical research paper,

completing all class work (hands on & academic) and completing a senior

project.

 

Criteria for Assessing Student Performance:

Class participation 80%

Conduct, citizenship complete class work

Test & Quizzes 10%

Classroom Theory, Classroom Textbook

Hands on projects 10% Completing related welding projects
