Advanced Welding Technology Degree Cost Estimate

The White Mountains Community College Advanced Welding Program is known for three things: teaching hands-on welding skills, training on the most cutting-edge equipment, and creating not just welders, but world-class professionals. Our strong industry ties are a product of the quality of our instruction and our ability to stay at the forefront of our field. Our program is intensive and a significant amount of time is spent learning the hands-on techniques that are directly applicable in industry upon graduation. The Associates in Advanced Welding is stackable with the certificate program and provides more hands-on instruction in advanced processes and techniques. It will prepare students for improved job prospects immediately, but even more importantly position them for advancement to further career goals. Furthermore, program graduates will possess the necessary foundation in welding to pursue further studies towards a higher degree. The program provides the option of an Associates in Science (A.S.) in addition to the Associates in Applied Science (A.A.S.) for those with a specific transfer path in mind.
