The Welding Technology program prepares students to become metal welders and fabricators. Students apply principles of math, metallurgy and electricity to manufacturing processes. Classes are conducted in modern facilities at the Ade-Wifco Reno County Industrial Center (RCIC) on the Hutchinson campus and in Newton at the Brooks Regional Center. Many job opportunities are available to welders throughout Kansas and the United States.
Using lathes, milling machines and spindles, Machine Technology students make precision metal parts in machining and manufacturing firms that produce durable goods, including metalworking and industrial machinery, aircraft and motor vehicles. Programmers and operators use computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines to produce large quantities of product, and qualified machinists are in high demand in the workforce. Classes are conducted at the Hutchinson Career and Tech Ed Academy and in Newton at the Brooks Regional Center.
