Welding Technology - AOS and AAS

The Instructional Program

The Welding Technology program at SUNY Delhi offers a number of degrees and options for students interested in pursuing welding. Both Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) and Associate in Occupational Studies (A.O.S.) degrees are available.

The A.O.S. degree is geared towards students who are seeking employment after graduation.  A one-year certificate is also available.

The A.A.S. degree is useful for those students with good math and science backgrounds who are considering transferring to a four-year school at some point. The A.A.S degree has two advisement options:

The majority of graduates proceed directly to employment.

Transfer Option

A second option for graduates is to transfer to a four-year program in this field. Two bachelor degree programs to which A.A.S. graduates can transfer are the Welding and Fabrication Engineering Technology program at Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport, PA, and the Industrial Engineering Technology program at SUNY Institute of Technology. A related career option would be to transfer to a school with a Technology Education or a Vocational Education bachelor degree, which would lead to a teaching career at the high school level. In New York State, two schools with this degree are SUNY Oswego and SUNY Buffalo.
