IND1500 – Introduction to Steel Welding pdf

Credits: 2 (1/1/0)
Description: This course will educate the student in the basic welding and cutting processes used in the welding industry. The skills developed in the lab include gas metal, gas tungsten and shielded metal arc welding processes and the oxy/fuel and plasma arc cutting processes on mild steel in the flat position. Safety in welding and cutting will be covered relating to the welding and cutting processes being used in class.
