https://www.pct.edu/welding Thanks to his bachelor degree in welding and fabrication engineering technology from Pennsylvania College of Technology, 2009 graduate Westley Smith believes he can do "anything" in welding. Today, he's a successful welding engineer for Appellation Pre-Fab, a pipeline fabrication company serving the natural gas industry throughout the Marcellus Shale. Smith couldn't be happier with his choice of career and college.
The Welding Engineering Technology program is the only two-year program of its kind in Canada. As a specialist on the engineering team, the technologist not only understands the welding processes used in metal fabrication, but is also trained in quality control, welding metallurgy, codes, fabrication techniques, inspection, drafting, weld design, management and supervision and computer skills.

Established in 1984, Ferris State University's nationally recognized Welding Engineering Technology program is the largest of its kind in the United States. Since its inception the program has had major revisions in response to constituent feedback. The program is designed to produce plant-level welding engineering technology graduates who are involved in the concept, design and engineering of weldments and implementation of welding processes. This overall knowledge of weldments and the ability to engineer welding and joining systems produces graduates who are in great demand and highly compensated.
