of Course to Program Objectives:
1B Apply the fundamental principles of science to
analysis of physical phenomena.
2A Describe the basic operating theory of the
various materials joining processes including arc, resistance, solid-state, and
high energy density welding.
2B Understand how welding design is built on a
foundation of heat flow, stress, structural analysis, and fitness-for-service.
2C Understand materials principles and how materials
are influenced by joining processes.
2D Describe the operating principles and analysis
methods for the various destructive and nondestructive techniques used to
4C Organize and present materials to technical peer
groups, customers, plant personnel and management.
5A Work independently without the need for constant
direction and supervision.
5B Engage in teamwork on both formal and informal bases.
