The course consists of lectures, which topics are listed below:

  • Concept of sustainability and quality
  • Welding standards and coordination
  • Welding procedure specification (WPS)
  • Welding defects and imperfections
  • Testing methods in welding production
  • Repair welding
  • Economics, costs, and productivity
  • Mechanization and automation
  • Welding networks and supply chains
  • Welding safety

There are some interactive exercises, and some practical case studies based on industrial tasks of a welding engineer, for instance:

  • Designing Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) according to standards
  • Identifying welding defects from real industrial cases
  • Interpreting results of destructive and non-destructive welding tests
  • Calculating the cost of welding operations
  • Evaluating the safety risks of welding workplaces from real industrial cases

Additionally, the course has an obligatory seminar assignment with presentation, which is a 20-30 pages report written by student for the whole duration of the course.
