Courses in the core curriculum have been identified as “Writing Across the Curriculum” courses. Minimum standards for the Writing Across the Curriculum component are: 1. The writing assignments should total 1500 – 2000 words. For example, a single report which is 1500 words in length OR a series of essay questions and short papers (example: four 375-word assignments) which total 1500 words could meet the requirement. 2. The writing component will represent at least 10% of a student’s final grade in the course. Is this course identified as a Writing Across the Curriculum course? ____Yes _X___No (See addendum for writing rubrics) Intended Course Goals By the end of the semester, students will be able to: 1. Follow safety practices and procedures while performing visual examinations. 2. Define and describe Inspection and Testing Methods common to welding fabrication. 3. Explain the different weld Joint Geometry and Welding Symbols. 4. Describe and analyze the methods used to insure the weldability of metals.
