Course description: An introduction course to basic fabrication and layout which covers production fabrication, layout tools, and fabrication procedures. Emphasis is on application of fabrication and layout skills for the welding industry.
Course objectives: Students will gain skills to follow written and verbal instructions to fabricate welded projects. The student will use numerical data to design, and understand welding related prints and projects.
Lecture: A course designed to help the student develop industry standard skills, as they apply to methods of fabrication, measuring, computation techniques, layout, and finishing processes, for fabricated and welded assemblies.
Lab: Students will gain knowledge, of application of fabrication processes, and layout skills. The student will apply appropriate techniques of fabrication; design welding projects; prepare drawings and produce templates. Apply layout offsets; take offs; bills of materials; and apply mathematical concepts in the construction of projects.
