Welding courses are not currently available due to ongoing facility changes.  The Collin Technical Campus, currently under construction, will house a substantial welding facility and is scheduled to open in the fall of 2020.

Please email Professor of Welding Darrel Rochell at drochell@collin.edu for more information.

Welding is a craft that is highly valued in both the industrial and the artistic worlds. Welders who graduate from Collin College’s program will be prepared to earn a job or go into business for themselves, providing a service that is always in high demand.

Collin College offers an associate of applied science in welding with two tracks and two level 1 certificates, Foundry/Metalsmithing and Welding Technology. The AAS will allow you to earn a degree in Welding or Foundry/Metalsmithing or a combination, while the certificates are designed to qualify you in specific processes such as welding, metal sculpting and foundry/metalsmithing.

If your program requires a criminal background check, your placement in a required clinical site, cooperative, practicum, internship, and/or licensure/certification opportunity may be impacted.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your program director and check with your licensing/certifying entity, if any, to determine your status.
