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.
