Salina Tech’s Welding Technology Program prepares students for a career as a welding professional in a wide range of fields, including manufacturing, fabrication, maintenance and construction. Using a blend of class time and hands-on project work, students learn both theory and practice, so they’re prepared to hit the ground running after graduation.

The program includes shielded metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, core wire welding and gas metal arc welding.

Graduates of this program have the opportunity to pursue careers as general welders, layout technicians, cutters, fabricators and even entrepreneurs (independent contracting welders).
