CAM 1182 Welding & Metal Joining III

This course is the third course in this series on welding and metal joining. This course will dive further into this career field providing further knowledge needed by the student to be prepared to enter the manufacturing field with the skills necessary for entry-level positions in welding. The course will include in-depth hands-on labs using MIG, TIG, Stick (ARC), and OX-acetylene use along with other metal joining options. This particular course will be available for students wishing to take welding to the next level. This course will also include a deeper understanding of design and blueprints along with manual machining integration and new fabrication techniques like waterjet and laser technology which will involve projects that utilize CAD design along with a stronger focus on GTAW welding skills. A student must receive a grade of C or higher in CAM 1181 in order to take this course. Two classroom, two lab hours per week.

Prerequisites: CAM 1107 and CAM 1109 and CAM 1181 and Other (CAM 1181 with a grade of C or better)

Course Outcomes
  • Explore advanced principles related to welding design. Demonstrate advanced use of MIG, TIG, Stick (ARC) and Ox-acetylene to join metal parts in a variety of positions for Ferrous and Non-Ferrous materials.
  • Recognize welding safety procedures as represented by the American Welding Society (AWS). Demonstrate the use of hand tools, personal protection equipment and safe work practices in an advanced setting.
  • Interpret and apply American Welding Society (AWS) welding symbols on fabrication drawings. Demonstrate the use of layout and measurement tools and part preparation in advanced projects.
  • Demonstrate competency through the successful completion of welding and fabrication projects through the creation of CAD designs, operation of manual machining equipment, along with metal joining through layout, shearing, bending, riveting, brazing and spot welding.
