Master of Science in Welding Engineering

College of Engineering
The domestic and global demand for welding engineers is increasing dramatically.

Ohio State's Welding Engineering Program has a long history of supplying top-notch welding engineers to the worldwide manufacturing community. In order to expand the availability of a Welding Engineering education to a wider audience, an online M.S. Welding Engineering degree program was established in 2003. This program is designed for individuals who are working in welding engineering or a welding-related job and wish to achieve a graduate degree, or obtain graduate credit, in Welding Engineering. It is also suitable for those who wish to retrain for a welding engineering-related position.
