Course Descriptions

Fabrication Math I, II
The Fabrication Math course is an interactive course provided by the American Welding Society. It is designed to teach students the mathematical input that is required to properly and efficiently fabricate. This course will cover the algebra and geometry associated with fabrication, and provide real-world applications.
Blueprints
This Blueprints course is taught out of a current informative book on blueprints and blueprint reading. The work is done as a class, and students take a review exam at the end of each chapter. This course is designed to help students recognize the components of a blueprint and understand how to fabricate by reading blueprints.
Concept Sketching
This course is designed to help students understand how to design and engineer materials into new and useful things. They will learn the steps to creation and design of a project, and how to finalize ideas to successfully fabricate items or projects. This will aid them in all aspects of the fabrication process by helping them understand how blueprints are engineered.
Intro to Solidworks
This course is designed to teach students how to design 3-dimensional projects on a computer programming system. This is to teach them the introductory steps to engineering blueprints for projects. The drawings made in this design program will be printed and used to fabricate example assemblies that are related to structural and pipe work in the industry.
Crane Rigging, Safety and Operation
This course will teach students how to safely operate cranes used to lift and move very heavy or large materials. They will gain hands-on experience and apply the knowledge and mathematical skills involved with operating an overhead crane. They will also learn the hazards of operating a crane, and how to prevent these risks to operate safely at all times.
Project 1, Structural Shapes Project
In this course, students will learn about structural material shapes, how to fabricate to structural code, and methods of steel erection used in the industry today. This course will involve and implement practices from previous courses, to help students understand the process of structural steel construction. They will be trained to use a wide variety of machinery and tools to successfully fabricate structural steel components.
Project 2, Pipe Project
This course will teach students about the process of pipe fabrication. This will include learning about the different pipe materials and how to identify them. They will also learn how to use and maintain tools and equipment that is used in a pipe fabrication industry setting. Techniques and practices of pipe-fitting will be implemented.
Project 3, Student Choice Project
This course will allow students to take a combined variety of learned knowledge and skills, and apply them to a project of their choice. Students will have the opportunity to design, finalize, and fabricate a project of their own. This will help students understand how all components of fabrication come together and allow them to fabricate complex items while maintaining industrial codes and standards.
