Our program, which is the locomotive of our Vocational School, has been providing education in the field of welding technologies since our first day in higher education. We aim to educate qualified welding technicians who possess both theoretical knowledge and practical skills required by the relevant industrial sectors within the framework of strong cooperation between our school and industry. With the support of Gedik Holding’s 50 years of experience, we train our students to be knowledgeable in all aspects of welding technology, have a solid understanding of basic metallurgy and materials, and not only practice their profession but also grasp it from an informational perspective. Today, some of our graduates work in the industry, while others continue their education in Metallurgy and Materials Engineering departments through vertical transfer.
Our graduates have the opportunity to participate in the “International Welding Technician” or “International Welding Inspection” training programs organized by the International Institute of Welding (IIW) in Paris, of which GEV is the responsible member for Turkey, with a discounted fee. Thus, they can obtain an internationally recognized second diploma. They also have the chance to study at our university’s engineering faculty with a 75% discount through the vertical transfer exam.
Our goal is to train qualified welding quality control technicians who possess the necessary skills in welding technology and quality control, can convert their knowledge and experiences into practice, are open to social and technological innovations, entrepreneurial, productive, respectful in human relations, and can meet the needs of constantly developing welding technologies and related industries in parallel with the scientific and technological developments in our country.
The Welding Technology Program aims to equip students with all kinds of knowledge and skills in the field of welding technology and to ensure that they have a comprehensive understanding of basic metallurgy and materials. The program aims to educate students not only as practitioners but also as individuals who have a thorough grasp of their profession from an informational perspective.
Quality and economical manufacturing require vocational knowledge of welding. Welded joints are used in almost all areas where metals are processed. High expectations are generally placed on the quality of welded joints. The welding seam should generally meet the properties of the base material, and this expectation should be achieved without adversely affecting the economy of the welded manufacturing. This economy and the necessary welding seam quality can only be achieved if the planning, implementation, and control of a welded manufacturing are done under the supervision of a technician from start to finish. For this reason, our Welding Technology program aims to train intermediate staff who are knowledgeable about technical processes on materials containing metal and can control the processes carried out.
Who can apply to this program?
Graduates of this program can easily find jobs in any area where metal-related production takes place. They can work as welding quality technicians in public or private iron, steel, aluminum, and casting factories, as well as in machinery, aviation, automotive, construction, and shipbuilding industries.
