Students in Welding and Precision Machining created the “gift from scrap” shown here for Governor Tom Corbett and his wife. The governor will be presented with this gift on Monday March 11 when SUN’s co-op coordinator Joe Weisser and his advisory committee meet Corbett at the capital.

The New Welding Program

Students hard at work in the new welding shop.

Former students probably remember that our Welding program has been split between two rooms for many years now.  After a long and complicated renovation, Welding has finally moved to its own consolidated classroom! Students are no longer split between to ares (which made supervision a challenge), and the new single-room setup sports more square footage than the old room configuration.

The new room also has more welding booths, and some new equipment! Welding has a new dust collection system, a virtual welder loved by both students and faculty, and new rollers for rolling plate steel.

Welding Tree

A Welding student’s Christmas tree.

Welding students Lester Moore and Dalton Brown provide us with a spark of holiday cheer with his welded Christmas tree.  As an added bonus it’s sitting on a Shaker table built by students in Wood Products Manufacturing.
