Welding Technology Center | Higher Institute for Applied Sciences and Technology

Welding Technology Center

In continuation of the national and pioneering role of HIAST in transferring and localizing technology, a distinguished center for welding technologies has been established, accredited by international bodies and institutions.

The center started its activities in early 2012 in the field of qualification and training in welding techniques and technical inspection of welded products according to an international education system.

The center also provides scientific consultations in the field of transfer and localization of modern welding technologies, which contributes to the development of the national industry.

  • The Welding Technology Center cooperates to achieve its goals with a number of scientific, international and regional institutions, including:
  1. International Welding Institute
  2. Austrian Welding Institute
  3. Metallurgy Research Center
  • The center includes twelve rooms for training and qualification work, equipped with all work requirements and occupational safety systems (gas extraction system, protection curtains, ...) and is also equipped with a large group of the latest welding machines: MMA - TIG - MIG MAG - SAW

The Welding Technology Center is sponsored and supported by a group of major international companies specialized in the manufacture of welding materials and equipment.
