The Welding Robotic Operation Technical Diploma is a 14 Credit program. The following is a typical semester breakdown of the courses within the program.

Get Started

The application takes just a few minutes to complete.

ROBOTIC WELDING APPLICATIONS 1 (10442141)

2.00

Develops fundamental skill in GMAW robotic programming. Learners create linear, circular, weaving and circular weaving programs and weld sequences in various joint types and positions. Weld parameters and quality, as well as repeatability will be emphasized.

NTC Assessments Offered:

ROBOTIC WELDING APPLICATIONS 2 (10442144)

2.00

Applies the fundamental skills developed in Robotic Welding Applications 1 to functional parts needed for manufacturing. Learners will create and implement fixtures to optimize efficiency and repeatability. They will also utilize a programmable robotic welding positioner to replicate "real-world" production, as well as explore other systems used in our local industry.

NTC Assessments Offered:

WELD PRINT READING 1: BASIC VIEWS AND DIMENSIONS (10442181)

1.00

Develop print interpretation skills needed in metal fabrication. Learners study orthographic projection, dimensioning, welding symbols and bill of materials. Learners apply concepts in hands-on activities, practicing basic layout skills and safe operation of saws, shears and drills.

WELD PRINT READING 2: OTHER VIEWS AND SYMBOLS (10442182)

1.00

Builds on print interpretation skills developed in Weld Print Reading 1. Learners study increasingly complicated prints and welding symbols. Learners will apply concepts in hands-on activities, practicing basic layout skills and safe operation of saws, shears and drills.

GAS METAL ARC WELDING 1: SHORT CIRCUIT TRANSFER (HORIZONTAL) (10442183)

1.00

Develops skill in gas metal arc welding. Learners use short circuit transfer to make fillet and groove welds in the flat and horizontal positions on steel. Weld quality is assessed per AWS D1.1 Structural Steel Code.

NTC Assessments Offered:

GAS METAL ARC WELDING 2: SHORT CIRCUIT TRANSFER (VERTICAL AND OVERHEAD) (10442184)

1.00

Develops skill in gas metal arc welding. Learners use short circuit transfer to make fillet and groove welds in the vertical and overhead positions on steel. Weld quality is assessed per AWS D1.1 Structural Steel Code.

NTC Assessments Offered:

GAS METAL ARC WELDING 3: SPRAY TRANSFER (10442185)

1.00

Develops skill in gas metal arc welding. Learners use spray transfer to make fillet and groove welds in the flat and horizontal positions on steel. Weld quality is assessed per AWS D1.1 Structural Steel Code.

NTC Assessments Offered:

SOLIDWORKS 1 (10606133)

1.00

Introduces the learner to basic SolidWorks commands to produce 3-dimentsional parts, assemblies and engineering drawings. The learner will master beginner level commands and have a thorough understanding of the basic operation of the software.

Industry Credentials Accepted:
  • SolidWorks Certified Associate Exam CSWA

COLLEGE MATHEMATICS (10804107)

3.00

This course is designed to review and develop fundamental concepts of mathematics pertinent to the areas of: 1) arithmetic and algebra; 2) geometry and trigonometry; and 3) probability and statistics. Special emphasis is placed on problem solving, critical thinking and logical reasoning, making connections and using calculators. Topics include performing arithmetic operations and simplifying algebraic expressions, solving linear equations and inequalities in one variable, solving proportions and incorporating percent applications, manipulating formulas, solving and graphing systems of linear equations and inequalities in two variables, finding areas and volumes of geometric figures, applying similar and congruent triangles, converting measurements within and between U.S. and metric systems, applying Pythagorean Theorem, solving right and oblique triangles, calculating probabilities, organizing data and interpreting charts, calculating central and spread measures and summarizing and analyzing data.

NTC Assessments Offered:
National Exams Accepted:
  • CLEP® College Mathematics

COLLEGE 101 (10890165)

1.00

Examines proven strategies designed to help learners achieve greater personal, academic, and professional success. Learners will apply personal responsibility thinking and behaviors; self- management, awareness, and motivation strategies; as well as interdependence skills to develop a proactive life plan.

NTC Assessments Offered:
