This six week session is an introduction to a variety of welding processes commonly used today.  This course is structured to provide a demonstration of the equipment and fundamentals of each process in combination with a description and discussion of the process limitations and typical applications.   Students will gain an understanding and appreciation of these processes through hands-on application of the techniques used in the following:  thermal cutting (OFC and plasma); shielded metal arc welding (60ll and 7018); gas metal arc welding (ER70S); and gas tungsten arc welding (Steel/stainless/aluminum).  The structure and duration of this experience is a basic introduction and therefore is not designed to build proficiency in any area.  Students are expected to wear leather shoes or boots, a long sleeve shirt, and safety glasses.
