Welding is then used to fuse or join the metals parts together. Fabrication and welding projects can involve simple, basic techniques, or they can be highly specialized and complex. In this technical diploma program, develop skills in interpreting blueprints; creating the exact shape of a part for cutting, fabrication and welding; and producing quality parts through the use of different techniques and materials. Learn the basic skills necessary to program and operate computer-controlled press brakes and shears, plasma arc cutting machines and micro-processor-based power sources.
