Our comprehensive program is designed to develop your skills in oxyacetylene (gas) and electric (arc) welding. Our classes are conducted in laboratories outfitted with modern industrial welding equipment. We provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to work with modern industrial welding equipment. We teach you to use advanced welding techniques and machines, including MIG (metal inert gas) and TIG (tungsten inert gas). The optional certificates provide a stepped path leading to the associate’s degree or certificates/certifications.
Bachelor of Science Degree in Environmental Science
The Bachelor of Science Degree in Environmental Science uses a 2+2 model designed to provide individuals who have obtained an Associate of Science (AS) or Associate of Arts (AA) degree from a regionally accredited college or university the opportunity to further their education. The Bachelor of Science (BS) in environmental science is designed for students that wish to pursue a career as a laboratory/field technician and/or progress to a graduate degree program (MS or PhD). The curriculum will provide the students with a foundational understanding of science, critical thinking skills, experiential learning, ethics and specific technical knowledge and skills required to work in the laboratory or the field. As environmental science is a truly broad multidisciplinary field, three main tracks or minors will be available during the final half of the curriculum. These track/ minors will address the major specialties (physical, biological, GIS, etc.) within the field and provide graduates with a wealth of discipline skills and knowledge that will make them competitive for employment within the environmental and biological science workforce.
