WEL 316 - Pipe Welding II

Last Date of Approval: Spring 2021

2 Credits
Total Lecture Hours: 15
Total Lab Hours: 30
Total Clinical Hours: 0
Total Work-Based Experience Hours: 0

Course Description:
This course is one of a two-semester sequence where students will become proficient in the theory and application of advance pipe welding. Emphasis is on safety, and welding in the 5G and 6G position. Welding processes used will be SMAW and the GTAW processes while welding with carbon steel and stainless steel pipe joints. Labs provide hands-on activities that help explain the lecture material. This course will help students refine their critical thinking skills in the shop as they develop their hands-on welding techniques, which will benefit the student in future welding careers. This course will also help students gain manufacturing communication skills to be used throughout their life.
