Metalworking is an incredibly diverse field, ranging from manufacturers of metal roofs and building components to machine shops that create precise pieces for companies in the medical, defense and advanced manufacturing industries. Even though the field is so diverse, these companies all have one significant thing in common—the medium with which they work is metal!

So, despite the diversity of the final products, the industry’s primary production workers tend to share specific traits and skill sets. For this reason, the presence of metalworking companies (and their skilled employees) tends to be a leading factor in the recruitment of additional metalworking companies.

Recognizing this, and with a desire to attract new business to the area, organizations like Coastal Carolina Community College have worked with industry leaders to build curriculum and certificate programs in areas important to metalworking companies, including an Associates in Applied Science in Welding.
