The Welding Technology department will host an interactive Open House event at the college’s state-of-the-art welding laboratory on Tuesday, May 21.
“It is very exciting to open our doors to the community so they can tour our metal fabrication lab and showcase the exciting new technologies our program has to offer,” said Tim Baber, department chair of Welding Technology at the college.
At the event, attendees will have the opportunity to watch live demonstrations of robotic welding, laser welding and computer numerical controlled (CNC) plasma cutting equipment that allows for improved speed and precision.
“Welding is fast becoming the preeminent metal joining process of choice and our students have the advantage of being trained with the latest technology available,” said Baber.
The COC Welding Technology program is a Career Technical Education (CTE) program, which provides workforce training to prepare students for entry into welding and metal fabrication related fields. Aligned with the American Welding Society’s Schools Excelling through National Skill Standards Education (SENSE) program, the college’s welding course can be completed in less than 18 months. Upon completion of the program, students are well prepared to enter the workforce.
The open house will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. in Towsley Hall, Room 128 on the college’s Valencia campus.
Food and refreshments will be served.
