​Welding Technology


PHIL COVER.jpg

Students entering Murdoch MacKay's Welding Technology Program are provided with a facility that is second to none.  Our facility exceeds safety standards set by the Government of Manitoba.  The program is project based, giving the students the seat time necessary to hone their skills.  Starting with welding basics in Grade 9, students have a gradual learning/skill progression to the many different disciplines offered - GMAW, SMAW, MCAW, GTAW, oxy-acetylene welding/cutting, plasma cutting, CNC plasma design, hand tools, hydraulic brake/press/shear/tubing bender, band saws, iron workers, angle grinders and the ever important ability to read and interpret blueprints and welding symbols on complex diagrams. Students have the opportunity to graduate the Welding Technology Program with Level 1 Accreditation and CWB certification.  We pride ourselves on preparing students for the work force or post-secondary education.

Where are some of the places our students go upon graduation?

Our students are always involved in helping the community.  With combined efforts, our Welding and Machining Technology Programs have raised over $17 000.00 (over the last 7 years) for United Way's - "Koats for Kids".  We have also raised over $1000.00 (over the last 2 years) in non-perishable food for the Transcona Food Bank.  Our students are always eager to put their work on display around Transcona and Winnipeg.
