MFWT 207 (4 credits)
Shielded Metal Arc Welding

Provides students with a thorough technical understanding of
shielded metal arc welding fundamentals, welding safety, welding
machines, and electrode classifications and selections. It also
provides training to develop the manual skill necessary to produce
high quality shielded metal arc welds in all positions on mild steel
from 16 gage to 1" plate with single and multiple passes. The
welding process using mild steel electrodes with low hydrogen
and iron powder flux coatings while using AC and DC power
sources is covered.
Prerequisite: MFWT 156

MFWT 212 (4 credits)
Metals Fabrication III: Triangulation Pattern

Developmental and Advanced Machine Processes Designed
to introduce students to the triangulation method of pattern
development. Using this discipline of pattern development,
students design, lay out, and fabricate transitions, Y-branches

and other irregular fittings related to sheet metal, piping, and
miscellaneous plate fabrication according to job specifications.
Students also learn advanced machinery set-up techniques
relative to the fabrication of components designed using this
layout process. Instruction in the use of precision measuring tools,
iron workers, press brakes, and saws are also major topics covered.
Prerequisites: MFWT 111 and MFWT 161

MFWT 222 (4 credits)
Industrial Applications II: CNC Applications and
Estimating

The major objective of this course is to introduce students to
aspects of programming and utilizing computer-controlled
plasma and oxy-fuel cutting systems. Students use AutoCADĀ®
and MTC ProNest software packages to produce duct, weldment,
and miscellaneous profile parts from blueprints, sketches, and
field measurements. Programmed parts are then nested and cut
on given sheet or plate sizes using state-of-the-art computer
numerical control (CNC) systems or plasma cutting system.
Layout techniques previously learned for profile programming
jobs are utilized. Other topics covered in this course are project
management and estimating.
Prerequisites: MFWT 161 and CIS 105

MFWT 257 (4 credits)
Gas Tungsten Arc Welding

Provides students with a thorough understanding of gas tungsten
arc welding fundamentals, arc characteristics, and welding safety.
It provides training to develop the manual skill necessary to make
high quality gas tungsten arc welds in all positions on 16- and 11gage mild steel, 16- and 11-gage aluminum, also 16-gage stainless
steel using both alternating and direct current. In addition,
material is presented on the weld characteristics of carbon steel,
stainless steel, and aluminum. The use of abrasives and other
clean-up techniques to produce quality USDA and FDA finishes is
covered. Instruction on the use of purging is also given.
Prerequisite: MFWT 156

MFWT 262 (4 credits)
Metals Fabrication IV: Radial Design Development and
Machine Processes
This course is designed to instruct students in the use of the radial
line method of pattern development. Students lay out and fabricate
various sheet metal and plate fittings such as cones, reducers, and
take-off branches using this technique. Fittings are then welded
using processes previously learned.
Prerequisite: MFWT 111

MFWT 267 (4 credits)
Industrial Applications III: Print Reading for Welding/
Field Equipment and Rigging

Selected on- and off-campus projects utilized to reinforce previous
instruction. Opportunity to study and evaluate projects to learn
various aspects of industry. Applicable codes and standards
used to insure proper design and applications of materials and
processes are covered. Also included are the interpretation of
welding blueprints and applications in field equipment and
rigging. Prerequisite: MFWT 166
