Welding Technology, A.A.S.

See Details

Welding is the most common way to permanently join metal parts. Heat is applied to the pieces to be joined, melting and fusing them to form a permanent bond. Because of its strength, welding is used to construct and repair parts of ships, automobiles, spacecraft and countless other manufactured products. Welding is used to join beams in constructing buildings, bridges, pipelines, and pipes in nuclear power plants and refineries. All types of welding equipment is used in a variety of positions: flat, vertical, horizontal and overhead.

Welders may perform manual welding, controlled entirely by the welder, or semi-automatic welding, where the welder uses machinery such as a wire feeder to perform welding tasks. They generally plan work from drawings or specifications or by analyzing damaged metal, using their knowledge of welding and metals. They select and set up welding equipment and may also examine welds to insure they meet standards or specifications.

PJC’s Criminal Justice Program offers 10 basic courses, plus special topics and internship classes. It is available in Paris and at the Greenville and Sulphur Springs Centers.

Classes rotate by semester, time, and location, as well as online so students have the widest selection of courses at their preferred campus, day or night.

PJC also transitions students into Texas A&M University-Commerce’s Bachelor of Applied Arts and Science program (BAAS). This affords students the opportunity to complete 86 credit hours at Paris Junior College, instead of the usual 60 credit hours, and transfer those to the BAAS program. This allows the student to complete the remaining 36 hours of study at Texas A&M University - Commerce.

PJC’s Criminal Justice Department offers an Associate of Science degree to prepare students to transfer to a four-year university as a criminal justice major (60 credit hours) and an Associate of Applied Science degree to prepare students for employment (60 credit hours).
