COTO’s welding program introduces the student to basic welding techniques as well as the tools, materials, and equipment used in SMAW (STICK), GMAW (MIG), GTAW (TIG), Pipe Welding, and Metal Fabrication. Emphasis is placed on the application of knowledge and skills gained from hands‐on activities using various types of metal. This program prepares students for employment in various industries such as construction, fabrication, plant maintenance, the automotive industry, and more.
The Associate of Applied Science degree, Technical Certificates, and Certificates of Proficiency are designed for employment purposes, and it should not be assumed that the degree or the courses in these programs can be transferred to another institution. While some institutions do accept some courses in A.A.S. programs, the general rule is that courses in A.A.S. degrees are not accepted in transfer toward bachelor's degrees unless that degree has been articulated with that specific institution. Students to whom transfer is important should get assurances in writing in advance from the institution to which they wish to transfer.
