The Bachelor of Welding Engineering provides basic liberal studies and the engineering training needed to function effectively in the manufacturing industries. This course combines work in several engineering fields and cross-disciplinary areas are covered to provide a well-rounded background for subsequent studies in welding materials, design, processes, and nondestructive evaluations. The programme is designed to prepare the student for complex research, production, and applications work in modern industry.
Through the course you will learn welding and joining skills, in addition to the fundamentals of fabrication and occupational health and safety. You will also learn to solve manufacturing, materials and method problems, and you'll gain hands-on experience in joining processes, fabrication, inspection and testing through lab-based classes.
The Certificate in Welding Engineering includes the requirements for a welding engineer to demonstrate competence through a combination of education, experience, and examination. This programme provides a means of recognition for those who demonstrate that they have the skills, knowledge and experience in the field of welding engineering.
Throughout this course, students gain an understanding of the properties of various materials. They acquire a base of engineering knowledge in order to develop welding techniques and operate special equipment. The programme includes coursework in chemistry, calculus, physics, design, welding processes, and project management.
The Master of Welding Engineering is the ideal stepping-stone to a high-level job in the field of welding and joining technology. In many countries, there is a permanent and growing demand for scientists and engineers who are knowledgeable and trained at an academic level in the field of welding engineering. This academic training is essential due to the increasing complexity of industrial production processes and the growing number of rules and regulations governing them, both in Europe and elsewhere.
This course is indispensable for engineers interested in R&D, quality, design, production, maintenance, and particularly welding metallurgy. Metal construction companies are obliged to observe the International Standard EN ISO 14731, which identifies the quality-related responsibilities and tasks included in the coordination of welding-related activities. As there is a growing need for qualified welding coordinators, European and international standards are increasingly moving towards this standard. These standards include the new EN 1090 (steel structures and aluminium structures), EN 15085 (railway applications), ISO 24394 (aerospace applications), and EN ISO 3834 (fusion welding of metallic materials).
