About Welding and Fabrication programme

Welders cut or join metal parts and also fill holes, indentations, or seams; using these metal parts to create functional and aesthetically-pleasing products.

Welding is a  process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion, which is distinct from lower temperature metal-joining techniques such as brazing and soldering, which do not melt the base metal.

Metal fabrication is the building of metal structures by cutting, bending, welding and assembling processes. It is a value-added process that involves the creation of machines, parts, and structures from various raw materials.

This welding and fabrication craft certificate course equips the student with skills in joining welding, cutting or forming of materials using one or more fabrication and welding processes.
