Maritime Welding Technology with Service Management

The Associate in Occupational Science (A.O.S.) degree program offers core training in the practical aspects of construction and repair of equipment and structures built with steel. In addition to structural skills, students will learn to weld pipe in multiple positions. Instruction is presented in both classroom and laboratory using modern welding equipment and tools. Students gain hands-on experience in a realistic shop setting where they must demonstrate specific proficiencies. Program content provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for entry-level employment as a combination structural and pipe welder.

The Service Management coursework provides students with a strong foundation in business management, customer service, communications skills, employee relations, inventory management as well as understanding business financial reports. Students with Service Management Skills may have the ability to advance more rapidly in the workforce or choose to start and manage their own business.
