Welding

The UAS Welding Program offers state-of-the-art equipment and safety. The program prepares students for steady, high paying jobs in a variety of industries that utilize welders.

Skilled, certified welders can find work on construction sites, in petroleum-related industries and in many jobs where heavy equipment is used. The Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development predicts strong growth in employment and job openings for welders, cutters, solderers, and brazers, estimating that between 2012 and 2022 employment will increase by approximately 18%.
