Fabricators are key to  the metal fabrication and construction industries. The Fabricator takes all the separate parts of a project and fits them together into one complete assembly. They use math, tools, and welding equipment to tack parts together to the precise specifications of engineered drawings. 

Students who enroll in the Custom Design and Fabrication program will learn to use blueprints, fitting tools, cutting equipment, and welding equipment to fit and tack projects.  Students will learn to use practical math to solve problems in the fitting process. Fabricators must be problem solvers and be able to find alternate methods to complete their  tasks, some Fabricators may even  weld projects that they fit together themselves

Assignments in the course are designed to simulate common tasks for Fabricators in fabrication shops and structural steel construction and erection. You will also learn about the construction and maintenance of pipes for oil and gas pipelines, refineries, power plants, and chemical processing plants. Class time will be dedicated to both classroom theory and hands-on application in the lab.
