Learn the fundamentals of welding and joining operations, quality assurance, welding design, robotic welding, CNC plasma cutting, non-destructive testing, and more.

Average class size is 16
Small classes enable our experienced faculty to give each student the personal attention necessary to optimize his or her learning experience.

"I am most impressed with Penn College's small class sizes. I am never herded into an auditorium with three hundred other students."
