Student Chapters

IT'S A FACT

Students are the future of the welding industry. The American Welding Society recognizes this. That is why we invite students, wanting to expand their welding knowledge and take a more active role in their careers, to get more involved with welding. Active participation in an AWS Student Chapter provides the knowledge, experience and networking needed to begin a successful career. Participation in a Student Chapter can provide AWS Student Members valuable experience for career and personal development. There are over 100 AWS Student Chapters located at schools across the country. Through Student Chapter participation, you can learn and sharpen the skills needed for a successful career in the welding industry. Involvement in a Student Chapter will also provide you with networking opportunities. Meet other welding students and professionals at Chapter meetings, local AWS Section meetings, and the FABTECH International & AWS Welding Show. Volunteer as a Chapter Officer and gain valuable leadership skills that will help throughout your career.
