Catalog: 2015–2016 Catalog Year
Approaches metallurgy with an emphasis on welding technology. Includes demonstrations, lectures, and experiments in the metals lab. Covers extraction metallurgy as well as physical metallurgy. The various destructive methods of testing metal as well as non-destructive testing of metals will be discussed and demonstrated. The processes use distortion control and technique of flame straightening.
Note: Non-transferable for an NSHE baccalaureate degree. Non-applicable towards an AA or AS Degree.
Safe conduct in a shop where metal fabrication and testing is performed.
