Metals Fabrication & Welding Students Improve Dining Hall

A big thank you to two recent graduates of our Metals Fabrication & Welding Technology program! Madison Gery and Adam Stock had the opportunity to gain one final hands-on learning experience before stepping into the professional world. They assisted the College’s Facilities Maintenance Department with a critical stainless-steel weld repair in Jones Dining Hall. This task involved re-welding a thin-gauge stainless steel electrical box to its conduit on one of the dining staff’s worktops.  

Equipped with the state-of-the-art ESAB Renegade VoltES201i welding machine, powered entirely by DeWalt batteries, Madison and Adam were able to perform the repair quickly and accurately. This new welding machine allowed them to demonstrate their skills in a real-world setting, showcasing the high level of training provided by our Metals Fabrication & Welding Technology program.   

We take pride in offering our students opportunities that prepare them for the workforce, ensuring they are well-equipped to handle the demands of their future careers. This practical experience is just one example of how we blend academic learning with in-the-field applications, giving our students a competitive edge in the job market.
