Overview

This unique program addresses the demanding and rewarding field of welding inspection and quality assurance through metallurgical analysis, destructive testing of welds and non-destructive evaluation methods for quality control and assurance. Students will learn to combine theoretical knowledge and practical skills in a variety of operational areas such as selection and application of welding processes, troubleshooting of welding equipment, the operation of welding robotics and automation. Students will also have the opportunity to study in outstanding facilities where considerable time will be spent in applying welding engineering technology inspection theories and skills in well-equipped welding and metal-testing laboratories. The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) conditionally recognizes this program as meeting all the academic requirements for certification in the Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) category.

Applying to the Co-op Stream

The optional co-op stream includes four consecutive four-month work terms.

Co-operative Education integrates academic studies with program-related experience in the workplace. This results in better-trained workers who are familiar with their professional expectations and have the skills needed to contribute to an organization right from the start.

The College cannot guarantee co-op employment. All co-op students are required to conduct an independent co-op job search in addition to the supports and services provided by the Department of Co-op Education.

Students will be informed of the application deadline and process to apply for the Co-op Stream. Labour market conditions determine the number of co-op seats in optional co-op programs. Every student who meets academic eligibility requirements may not be admitted to the co-op stream.

To be considered for admission to the co-op stream, students will be required to achieve an overall 60% unweighted average (with a maximum of one dropped or failed courses) in all Level 1 and 2 program courses. If an applicant has a lower overall average, their application will be decided upon on a case-by-case basis, based on one or more of: course performance, a possible interview, and number of acceptances already granted. Courses in which exemptions were granted or PLARs achieved will be ignored in calculating the average (with the exception below).

Career opportunities

Graduates are prepared for employment in the welding inspection and quality assurance field for both construction and fabrication shop environments. Additional opportunities exist in welding procedure research and development, metallurgical laboratories, technical sales, and welding shop management.
