Salina Tech’s Welding Technology Program prepares students for a career as a welding professional in a wide range of fields, including the manufacturing, fabrication, maintenance and construction sectors. Through a balanced blend of class time and hands-on customer project work, the program helps bridge the gap between education and real-world field work so that students can feel confident in their ability to obtain a job soon (if not immediately) after graduation.

From shielded metal arc welding and gas tungsten arc welding, to core wire welding and gas metal arc welding, no job is too difficult for our students. Graduates of this program have the opportunity to pursue careers as general welders, layout technicians, cutters, fabricators and even entrepreneurs (independent contracting welders).
