When it comes to the engine building field, and the automotive industry in particular, much of the welding is performed by automated robots. However, that certainly doesn’t mean there’s no place for welders in this area. Consider the fact that many specialized production and repair jobs need the human hand of a skilled welder.
Laser welding and MIG welding are two types that are still readily in demand in the automotive and engine building industries. Did you know that it takes 950 hours of welding to build a single NASCAR vehicle? Welding in general reaches far into the production sector as a whole.
As you’ll see by this fact sheet compiled by the team at Tulsa Welding School and posted below, skilled welders are needed to help build ships, airplanes and even spacecraft.
