Description: Focus on the Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) process for out of position welding. This will include an introduction to fabrication, weld procedure specifications, and base metal preparation.

Welding will include AWS typical fillet and lap joint designs in the flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead positions with an emphasis on proper use and care of equipment and safety procedures. Prerequisites: Specialization #1; WLD 121.

Measurable Student Learning Outcomes
1. (Application Level) Explain and demonstrate safe working habits and procedures within a lab setting related to the welding trades.(CSLO 2)

2. (Analysis Level) Explain and illustrate the importance and uses of weld procedure specifications, base metal preparation, and weld symbols.(CSLO 2,3)

3. (Application Level) Apply the basic principles of fabrication using the common tools of the trade. (CSLO 2,3)

4. (Synthesis Level) Develop proper techniques in utilization of Oxyfuel, Plasma, and Carbon Arc Cutting for base metal preparation and weld repair.(CSLO 2,3)

5. (Synthesis Level) Develop and improve welding techniques using the fillet, lap, and T-joint welds in the vertical and overhead positions, with emphasis on safety and proper use of equipment. (CSLO 2,3)

6. (Evaluation Level) Detect and assess the cause of weld defects: slag inclusions, porosity, overlap, lack of fusion, and undercut. (CLSO 2,3)

7. (Application Level) Explain and demonstrate proper weld techniques and how to avoid weld defects. (CSLO 2,3,4)

8. (Evaluation Level) Explain, demonstrate, and critique three parameters of a good weld: penetration, crown height, and weld pattern. (CSLO 2,3)
