Welding students have three degree options in which to choose:
Students can obtain a one year Certificate of Completion in Welding Technology in preparation to enter the job market as a skilled welder. Proficient students are able to obtain welder certifications for SMAW, GMAW, FCAW, and GTAW to AWS code requirements.
The second option is to pursue an Associate of Applied Science degree in Welding Technology. Students pursuing this degree are expected to be qualified candidates for welding equipment salesman, inspectors, foreman or supervision responsibilities in welding related fields.
The third option consists of students working toward an Associate of Science degree with an emphasis in Welding Technology. This option is for students planning to pursue a baccalaureate degree at a four year institution after graduating from USU Eastern.
Students should work closely with their academic advisor when scheduling classes, transferring, and filling out the necessary matriculation forms. The advisor can be a useful source of information and assistance; however, it is the student's responsibility to seek an advisor's aid and meet the necessary graduation requirements.
