LSC-CyFair Welding Technology Department

Welding Technology is a comprehensive program of studies designed to provide skill development opportunities in oxyacetylene (gas) and electric welding. Classes are conducted in laboratories that are equipped with modern industrial welding equipment, and skills development opportunities are afforded in advanced welding techniques.

IMPORTANT NOTICE!

Safety first and follow directions always. Remember you are welding and you will get burned, so take the necessary precautions and purchase the equipment you feel is appropriate. No equipment will be loaned out and none of your equipment will be stored here for you. If you show up to the welding lab in baggy or frayed pants, tennis shoes or flip flops you will be asked to go home and change and will lose points for the day. If you show up without your equipment you will be asked to leave and retrieve your equipment, and lose points for the day.

When there is lecture you will need your book (Jeffus, Welding Principles and applications 6th edition), pen, pencil, paper, folder, or binder, and a ruler. Bring these things to class or you will be asked to leave and retrieve the required items, and lose points for the day. The instructors in the Welding Program take their job very seriously. They expect the same of you as students. If you do not wish to take your classes seriously I advise you now to walk out the door and drop your welding courses. Other students that need these classes, and are willing to make the sacrifice, are waiting to sing up in your place.
