Welding engineering includes design of the joints to be welded, development of the detailed joining procedures to be used, selection of the materials incorporated in the joint, joint inspection and quality control for the final product. Welding engineering can also involve research in these areas, such as developing new welding processes or procedures for new materials. Welding engineers work with design engineers to develop efficient welding designs and fabrication procedures. The Welding Engineering program is offered by The Ohio State University.
Welding engineers are involved in research and development, production, construction, and inspection functions involving welded fabrication. They also work in consulting, teaching, management, sales and service functions. There are also opportunities to be owners or partners in private sector businesses.
As the world becomes more conscious of the environment and the need for conservation of natural resources, many new opportunities are available for welding engineers. These opportunities include the design and manufacture of automobiles, trucks and airplanes that are lighter, safer and more fuel efficient, with improved environment control systems. The exploration of space brings the opportunity of designing and manufacturing space probes and space shuttles.
Some employers of welding engineering students include Babcock & Wilcox Co., Boeing, Caterpiller Inc., Edison Welding Institute (EWI), John Deere, Lincoln Electric Co., and Wolf Robotics.
