This program develops the basic academic and technical skills students must acquire to pursue a career in welding, CAD, or manufacturing.  These skills will be developed in the areas of Shielded Metal Arc Welding, Gas Metal Arc Welding, 2D CAD (Computer Aided Drafting), and 3D CAD and Parametric Modeling.  Upon completion of these courses, the student will be able to use a fusion process to join (weld) two pieces of metal by applying intense heat to melt the edges of metal so they fuse permanently.  Students will also determine the welding process best suited for the metals being fused.  Additionally, students will learn to create basic 2-dimensional CAD drawings complete with multiple views and dimensions.  An emphasis will be placed on drafting fundamentals.  Finally, students will learn 3-dimensional CAD (Parametric Modeling) with an emphasis on dimensioning mechanics and assemblies.  

**Students successfully completing this course will have the opportunity, with additional coursework at HCC, to earn certificates and/or degrees in Welding, Welding and Fabrication, Industrial Training, , and CNC Machining.  Dual Credit at HCC:  WELD130, WELD232, DRAF105, DRAF106

Students may apply to the Plumbers & Pipefitters Union Local 23 apprenticeship upon completion and high school graduation.

All accepted students will attend a mandatory orientation meeting prior to the start of classes.

There are 3 different options for year two of the Industrial Technologies course. 

 

Option 1: Students attend college-level courses on Highland’s campus during the school day.  This option would require permission from the student’s school.  Courses could include  3D CAD, Machine Processes, CNC Mill, CNC Lathe or other Technical Electives for the alternating days.  Students selecting the 3D CAD course could also attend during normal CareerTEC hours. Option 2: Students complete Occupational Education (OCED) courses, otherwise known as workplace experience.  Students seek part-time paid employment or unpaid internship with an area manufacturer.  The employment would align with the HCC Welding and/or CNC Machining programs.  Option 3: Students could select a combination of options 1 and 2.  Students are responsible for gaining the credits required by their high schools.  Dual Credit at HCC: SPTP270, SPTP 269 & OCED 290
