Welding engineering impacts more than 50 percent of the products manufactured in the United States. Almost every segment of our economy depends, to some degree, on welding and materials joining. The Welding Engineering program is offered by The Ohio State University.
- Welding engineers use their advanced science and math skills to solve problems, and they must understand the properties behind welds to ensure that welded structures are safe and a benefit to society.
- Welding engineers have expertise in materials science, including steels, nonferrous alloys and polymeric materials, and in process technology, including arc welding, lasers, resistance welding, brazing and soldering.
- Welding engineers are experts in robotics, from programming and applications to sensors and controls.
Students enrolled in the Welding Engineering program at Ohio State are trained to help develop solutions to the manufacturing challenges of the 21st century. This includes pipelines, pressure vessels, aircraft, turbine engines, automobiles, off-road equipment, microelectronic devices, welding machines and robots.

- The typical length of time for completion of a PhD degree while enrolled as a full time student is approximately five years, inclusive of Summers. A student holding a GRA or Fellowship will often combine research and academic studies during the first two to three years in the program. During this period the student will take 14-16 courses to develop his/her knowledge of WE.
- By the end of the first year in the program the student is to take the Qualifying Examination. At the point that the student has taken 45 graded graduate courses--roughly 2-3 years into the degree--s/he may take the Candidacy Exam. Approximately one year after completing the Candidacy Exam the student is to present and defend an acceptable dissertation.
