Metal Arts is a craft that is highly valued in both the industrial and the artistic worlds. Metal Arts 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 Metal Arts, an OSA in metalsmithing, two level 1 certificates, and one level 2 certificate. The AAS will allow you to earn a degree in Metal Arts, while the certificates are designed to qualify you in specific processes such as Metalsmithing, Foundry, Metal Sculpture, and Metal Arts.
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.
The Metal Arts program will be housed at the Allen Technical Center. The department has a foundry and TIG, MIG and stick welders.
Students planning to transfer to a college or university should check with the Collin academic advisors. Also check the degree requirement of the intended transfer college prior to beginning this program to verify course degree applicability.
