Welding Technology


Welding is the melting and fusing of metal using heat or pressure - making the metal structure strong so it can support the building. Welders work in shipbuilding, bridges, power plants, oil rigs, refineries, gas pipelines, tanks, buildings and even art.

Brazosport College’s classes offer hands-on, real-world, welding training - taught by experienced faculty. Employers in our region are asking for trained welders. The jobs are out there and the pay is good.  Welders usually work from drawings or blueprints. This program provides both introductory and advanced skills in Shielded Metal Arc Weldling (SMAW), Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW). Sites along the Texas Gulf Coast need welders to maintain and repair metal structures that rust and corrode.
 
Brazosport College has a number of excellent welding programs that qualify you to take a national certification exam. With each type of certification, you are prepared to step into different jobs. The best welding jobs come to those with the highest education.
