WELDING ENGINEERING

Overview

Welding Engineering concerns all aspects of welding that lead to the manufacture of a product.


Welding is the process of using a combination of pressure and heat to fuse separate pieces of metal into one piece.


The research of more effective welding techniques, the design of more efficient equipment to aid in the welding process, the supervision of manufacturing processes to ensure quality control or evaluate inspection procedures, are some of the aspects related to the welding engineering field.

Welding Engineers

Welding engineers develop welding techniques, procedures, and application of welding equipment to problems involving fabrication of metals, utilizing knowledge of production specifications, properties and characteristics of metals and metal alloys, and engineering principles.

They can also conduct research and investigations to develop and test new fabrication processes and procedures, improve existing or develop new welding equipment, develop new or modify current welding methods, techniques, and procedures, discover new patterns of welding phenomena, or to correlate and substantiate hypotheses.

Welding Engineering graduate students are employed by  a wide range of industries, universities, national laboratories and independent research organizations. Industrial opportunities include power companies, nuclear power plant design and construction, aerospace, automotive, appliance,  consumer items, and much more.
Every time a new manufacturing process that involves welding is created or updated, the corresponding welding codes and procedures must be evaluated, adjusted and revised accordingly.

And it’s the welding engineer’s  job to do the research and make the necessary assessments to develop and publish updated codes and procedures. Welding engineers’ knowledge of the physics behind welding processes is also applicable to developing and designing welding equipment, making their expertise relevant to welding equipment manufacturers. Due to the uniqueness of the program, Welding Engineering graduates are highly sought after, both nationally and internationally.

Welding Engineering courses

Our Study Plan in Welding Engineering

Our graduates, studying the programs, will achieve engineering and technical skills that allow them to use elements from all areas of Engineering, Science, Mathematics and Technology to design and build welding and joining systems with different materials and products.

The courses contain subjects related to welding methods and processes, metals and their properties, materials science, computer-aided design (CAD), and the use of robots in welding.

The competences will move new welding and technology processes from the laboratory to the factory.
The fundamentals topics concern the fundamentals of Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics and related engineering fields.
The MSc graduates will get a chance to use what they have learned in a major design project that will require them to apply what they have learned to solve a realistic problem: so they will use state-of-the-art laboratories to apply classroom discussions to real problems.

The four available levels are the following:

Additional Information
All courses are evaluated through homework, quizzes, tests, exams and projects supplied by the teacher/tutor during the program.
The level of the scores assigned to the students refers to the knowledge gained and helps the teacher/professor in identifying the need to fill any debits by planning of further training/studies to attain the necessary skills.

For information, the UK grade system of marks and symbols and the correspondence with the US grade: first (100 – 70)% = A (US); upper second (69 – 60)% = B+/B (US); lower second (59 – 54)% = B/B-; third (53 – 42)% = C (US); pass (41 – 38)% = D (US); fail (<38)% = F (US).
