Robotic Welding Certificate

Robotic Welding Certificate

Program Description

The Robotic Welding Certificate instructs students in welding cell safety devices, blueprints, and symbols. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be skilled in manual and robotic Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) welding processes, welding procedures, and creating and editing robotic welding programs.

Program Outcomes

By completing this program, students will achieve the following learning outcomes:
• Apply proper industry safety standards;
• Interpret and follow industrial welding prints;
• Identify GMAW processes and procedures;
• Demonstrate manual GMAW processes and procedures;
• Configure multiple robotic weld procedures, weld schedules, and weave schedules;
• Create welding programs and use techniques found in the industrial robotic welding industry; and
• Configure and utilize advanced welding programming options.

Career Opportunities

This certificate prepares students for career opportunities as welders to setup automated equipment within a robotic welding cell using safety devices, user operator systems, and welding power supplies. They also maintain welding torch equipment, create and modify robotic welding programs, and change existing welding parameters. Common career titles in this field are Robotic Welding Cell Operator, Robotic Welding System Technician, Robotic Welding System Operator, Robotic Welding Setup Operator.

Graduation Requirements

In addition to the program requirements, students must meet the following conditions in order to graduate:

  1. College Cumulative GPA Requirement: cumulative grade point average (GPA) of credits attempted and completed at CLC must be at least 2.0;
  2. College Technical Core GPA Requirement: cumulative GPA of credits attempted and completed towards the technical core of the diploma or degree must be at least 2.0;
  3. Residency Requirement: students must complete 25% of their credits at Central Lakes College.
