Robotic MIG Welding at Sampson Community College
The shortage of professional welders in the United States is becoming critical. It is estimated that most of welders are 55 years old and they are going to retire soon. As a result, industries and colleges need to work out a number of educational programs to increase a number of young people that would be skilled enough to work as welders.
The information provided by the American Welding Society confirms that the shortage of welder will reach 200,000 skilled welders by the year of 2020. Consequently, the increase in hourly wages of skilled welders is expected. To prevent this, the welding community needs to create all the opportunities for young people to succeed in this sphere of activity. As a result, a lot of students get a chance to find their place in life after finishing Sampson Community College.
The college can provide you with all the needed skills within the welding program called SCC’s Welding Technology program. The results are obvious as all the graduates that finished the college in May managed to find a job. There shouldn’t be any doubt about welding careers but welders need to have skills to cope with high volumes without reducing quality. Besides, Sampson Community College announces that students are ready to work both in the welding and fabrication fields right after graduation.
Additionally, they can get skills in such fields as farm repair, manufacturing and production with the help of learning the basis of MIG, TIG, and Stick welding processes. Another prospective field that is going to be represented soon is associated with robotic MIG welding. The classes will start in the spring of 2016 and the related program will help students get some skills in programming of the robotic arm to produce products. Besides, there are also jobs in the area that need professionals in the sphere of robotic MIG welding.
