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.
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.
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.
The lessons, whose key feature is the multi-disciplinarity, may be followed completely online (through our e-learning platform and with the assistance of qualified professors/tutors) or blended, in collaboration with the universities and the courses are also recognized by personnel/certification bodies: the university, designated in agreement with the candidate, will issue the title upon completion of the course of study.
Our candidates, 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.
Welding Engineering graduates 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.
The courses contain subjects related to, for example, welding methods and processes, metals and their properties, materials science, computer-aided design (CAD), and the use of robots in welding.
Furthermore, 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.
For the admission to the university programs, from the Certificate to the Bachelor's level, applicants must fulfill the following requirements:
- have a high school diploma
- have a cumulative GPA of 3.0
For the Certificate level, in the event of no possession of a high school diploma, the student, with already 5 years past high school age experience, has to attend a bridging coursework to test him out on, for example, science and literary skills and to confirm he has the competency to apply under the adult program.
In many cases those who are 23 years old are exempted from having to attend high school diploma exams: in this case the universities add a remark on the transcript that the person has completed a bridging coursework equivalent to high school.
From the Diploma to the Bachelor's level, in the event of no possession of a high school diploma, the student must have a Certificate in the same field of the course chosen for the admission to the Diploma program or a Diploma in the same field of the course chosen for the admission to the Associate degree's program or an Associate degree's in the same field of the course chosen for the admission to the Bachelor's degree program.
Admission requirements established by the university to Master's level programs must be a Bachelor's/Master’s degree related to the course chosen, issued by an institution approved by an appropriately accredited agency internationally recognized or an educational institution approved by an equivalent authority.
The number of courses to be attended for the Master's Degree beyond the Bachelor's Degree/Master’s degree are different according to the area of study (subjects as, for example, individual research project, group project for the on-site courses, in relation to the course chosen, can be added).
The universities may accept a maximum of 6 courses in transfer towards the Master's degree for Bachelor’s courses, completed at an institution approved by an appropriately accredited agency internationally recognized or an educational institution approved by an equivalent authority.
Admission requirements established by the university to Doctorate level programs must be a Master’s degree related to the course chosen, issued by an institution approved by an appropriately accredited agency internationally recognized or an educational institution approved by an equivalent authority.
The number of courses to be attended for the Doctorate are different according to the area of research (they may be based on an extensive research work related to the discovery or introduction of findings due to extensive research works in a particular area).
The recognition of prior learning (RPL) for the programs from the Certificate to the Bachelor's level is based on a combination of high school GPA, completion of specific high school courses, list of learning and training activities attended, general and technical knowledge, work experience related and coherent to the course chosen; for a specific Master's degree program, the recognition of prior learning (RPL) is based on a combination of completion of specific Bachelor's/Master’s degree programs, list of learning and training activities attended, general and technical knowledge, work experience related and coherent to the course chosen.
For information such as, for example, registration procedures, admission requirements, recognition of university credits, please contact us at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or skype: talk to us, even to know the schedule of classroom courses.
The candidate must submit in advance, together with the information request, the CV in order to verify if there are the requirements for registration.
In addition, candidates who had gained experience arising from previous studies, also not concluded, and professional activities, can ask for evaluation of university credits.
Any request or communication must be forwarded directly to our email address: email@example.com.
Once this phase is complete, the program will be prepared, as well as the related costs and application forms (the form of the university and the general one of the services of International Studies Ltd), which will then be transmitted to the candidate.
Distance training offers the opportunity to follow lessons easily from home with one’s own times and methods in addition to quality teaching services and support of a professor/tutor.
