Work in Welding Technology
Skilled welders are in greater demand than ever! Nearly everything we use in our daily life is welded or made by equipment that is welded. Welders help build metal products from coffeepots to skyscrapers. They help build space vehicles and millions of other products ranging from oil drilling rigs to oil refineries, nuclear power plants and automobiles.
In construction, welders are virtually rebuilding the world, extending subways, building bridges and helping to improve the environment by building pollution control devices. The use of welding is practically unlimited. There is no lack of variety in the type of work that is done. (content provided by Hobart Institute of Welding Technology)
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, about two out of three welding-related jobs are in manufacturing industries.
