Welding Fabrication and Robotics Programs

Technical diploma graduates who desire increased knowledge and skill development in the Welding field may pursue a second year in the Welding Associate Degree program. Students will have the opportunity to program and operate CNC cutting and forming equipment and robotic welders, displaying the skills needed to work in an advanced metal manufacturing environment.

Students will also expand their blueprint reading skills through fabrication layout, fixturing and precision measurement. Welding metallurgy, inspection and machine shop principles will also be studied. Critical thinking skills will be built through problem solving activities that foster teamwork, positive attitudes, outstanding work ethics and an understanding of global competition.

The Welding Fabrication & Robotics Associate Degree is conveniently offered at the Wausau campus. Students can begin this program in the fall or spring semester.

Many short-term certificates ladder into the associate degree and technical diploma programs, creating a seamless transition for lifelong learning. Certificates that complement this program include the Production Welding Certificate. Northcentral Technical College believes in providing options for students to ladder from NTC to other colleges and universities offering advanced degrees. The College has developed transfer agreements with four-year private colleges and universities, as well as the University of Wisconsin System to help NTC students earn a bachelor degree.
