very good all around knowledge from all teachers
i like amount of shop time we get in this program and in that time you
can get alot done
Got to work with new and advanced equipment. Alot of hands on work
and help. Learned all major forms of welding
the most i liked about this program is the good detailed teaching and
mostly the hands on expeirence and i know more now about welding
than i ever have.
I like that we seem to go over every from of welding. I like that we also
go over other thing such as applied math, blue print and blue print
drawing.
I enjoyed the hands-on learning experiences in the lab.
i liked the fabrication class it taught us how to correctly do fabrication
projects.
I think that this program was very well designed and taught. The
teachers really seem to care and are willing to help you learn.
It was very well organized and all the teachers were very smart and i
learn a lot from them.
About the only thing I liked about this program is learning the different
process' of welding.
I think the program covers everything a person needs to know to
begin a career in the welding field.
I enjoyed the hands on and learning of the GTAW, GMAW, SMAW
welding procceses.
I liked all the hands on experience to the program. We were'nt sitting
around all the time learning theory but also applying it to material.
It was a very useful course. I liked the hands on experience. The
teachers were very knowledgable about welding.
It was a very educational,I learned a lot from the program. The
program does need to be tweeked a bit. I think it would be helpfull to
be able to weld on all types of metal

Nothing
less movies, more hands on views
I wouldn't change anything, I thought it is a great experience.
There is a lot of information to obtain in a year. It wouldn't be a bad
idea to make it a longer program. Every process has so many different
things that branch off one another.
Make the program a two year class so we can learn in depth about
every type of welding process.
I would change the two classes that seem to be the same.

Yes i feel the communication skills that I learned has helped me learn
how to ask questions about different steps and not be afaird to ask
yes for the most part except for John Martins blueprint class. It was
basically a teach yourself class. I honestly would have been better
just reading the book on my own.
Fun
so so
I think I learned a great deal of useful information in this program.
Somewhat. some teachers didb't have books of the welds thay just
told us what to do and if he dissapeared for forty minutes you dont
know what to do and wasting the students time.
good communication skills

It needs to have more weldments in diferent metals such as galvinized
metals to have the practical knowlege to be able to weld
I would change nothing, I liked this program as it is.
i would like to see it a two year program because we could of spend
alot more time on some of the littler things and just get more time to
learn and try other things.
I would maybe change the times or hours of classes.
First I would cut down on some of the material handling. I understand
we need to know how to properly use equipment but after 3 months or
so we should not have to waste tons of time cutting and grinding
pieces to weld. In industry welders will not need to make parts very
often so I think a little more welding time (less prep) would be
benaficial.
I would change the start time to a little bit later in the morning and I
would change the way that the blueprint reading course is taught and
perhaps intergate the mechanical drawing with blueprint and have one
teacher that is really good at teaching it.
i would change it so u got a full day fab class one day a week, the
entire year.
More in class with blueprint reading-more in depth and using the book
more.
there is nothing major i would really change about the program
because i like the way it was taught throughout the year. Doing mainly
all hands on work and getting us prepard for the working world. If i
were to change anything i would maybe add in another fabrication
class to build more projects.

Western Wisconsin Technical College

Effectively applied mathmatical concepts
Math teacher did a great job.
Learned proper techniques to use shop tools and machines. Proper
measurements and squaring.
i really like math i'd like to see more of it..
yes. adding and subtracting fractions
it seemed easy and went fast.
I liked the option of testing out early in math, which I utilized.
Learned how to use Shear and Press break using Math-matics

alot of thinking was invovled and i liked that alot about the program
because you used alot of comman sense and critical thinking towards
projects or the welding we were practicing
This program helped with the ability to think critically because the
Instructors were only in class 50% of the time so we needed to learn
figure things out independently without the assistance of our teachers.
This program makes you be a judge of your own work, a useful skill in
welding.
yes problem solving
Bending, Cutting and welding material properly for a customer and not
ruining everything
Learned to think ahead and have an idea of what you want and what
your project will look like before you even start.
