About Welding Engineering

Welding Engineering at The Ohio State University offers a four-year Bachelor of Science degree program within the College of Engineering.  Masters and Ph.D. degree programs are also available.


Welding is a critical manufacturing process that has been estimated to impact over 50% of the products manufactured in the U.S. Almost every segment of our economy depends, to some degree, on welding and materials joining. While most may think of welding in terms of a process, it is actually a complex engineering discipline that involves aspects of materials science, design, inspection, mechanical and electronic systems, lasers, and robots.

The Welding Engineering Program at the Ohio State University is designed to educate welding engineers to meet the challenges of manufacturing for the 21st century. We have the only ABET accredited Bachelor of Science in Welding Engineering program in North America, and also offer advanced degrees (M.S. and PhD). The OSU Welding Engineering Program is recognized worldwide, and our welding engineers are highly valued by industry. It is a unique program for unique individuals who enjoy the hands on, problem solving, get-it-done aspects of engineering.
