From automotive parts to aerospace applications to construction projects, welders have their hands in many different industries. If a career in the field sounds exciting to you, Universal Technical Institute (UTI) can help you get there — and you can train right here at our Dallas/Fort Worth campus.1
The Welding Technology program was created in conjunction with industry leader Lincoln Electric. Over the course of just 36 weeks, students learn four different welding processes, helping them learn to become combination welders.
At the Dallas/Fort Worth campus, students have the opportunity to train on VRTEX® virtual welders, which can help them hone their skills in a simulated environment before picking up the torch for the first time.
UTI’s Welding training is designed for students of all skill levels, whether you’ve grown up working with welding equipment or are brand new to the industry. Here’s a quick look at some of the courses included in the program:
