Welding Engineers are critical to the welding and fabrication process. In fact, they are becoming increasingly needed across industry.

certificationThe expertise of Welding Engineers is often called upon to help understand materials and their behaviour during welding; construction and design processes and other applications in engineering.

As demand for International Welding Engineers continues to grow, we understand the value of supporting local engineers as they progress in their careers.
