The Southern Arkansas University System has developed a Welding Engineering Technology that is one-of-a-kind in Arkansas, and one of only a few in the country.
“We hire locally as much as possible, and look forward to recruiting at SAU to fill positions as they become available.”

In development of this Welding Engineering Technology program, the SAU System found there to be a need for highly skilled welding supervisors to lead the welding and fabricating operations in advanced manufacturing industries and specifically the aerospace defense and oil and gas manufacturing industries of southern Arkansas.
“SAU and SAU Tech do an outstanding job in equipping students to meet local industry needs. Welding engineers are in great demand regionally, and certainly at Lockheed Martin’s Camden facility,” said Colin Sterling, director of Lockheed Martin Camden Operations. “We hire locally as much as possible, and look forward to recruiting at SAU to fill positions as they become available.”
Striving to avoid duplication in programs and removing transfer obstacles, SAU System administrators are proud to be implementing this integrated program that will utilize strengths of both SAU and SAU Tech.
