The American Welding Society (AWS) trailer will pull into Chattanooga State Community College with their “Explore Career Opportunities in Welding” traveling exhibit on Monday, October 21. The exhibit will be set up in parking lot P-17 in front of the Center for Engineering, Technology, Arts & Sciences (CETAS) building from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Students from local high and middle schools have been invited along with current ChattState and local Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) welding students. The trailer not only has equipment and virtual welding opportunities, but includes a new non-destructive testing exhibit where students can find out more about careers in Non-Destructive Technology as well.

AWS teamed up with Lincoln Electric and other industries to teach youth and adults about career pathways involved in welding. The exhibit helps communities experience the latest in welding technology, learn about welding careers and education using a state-of-the-art trailer outfitted with five VRTEX®360 virtual reality arc welding training simulators.

ChattState Engineering Technology staff have teamed up with AWS members to present this exciting exhibit. For more information, call Tracie Clifford at (423) 697-5725 or visit
