University of Alberta AWS Student Chapter

The University of Alberta AWS Student Chapter welcomes you to learn more about our Student Chapter, its members, and our efforts to live the mission of the American Welding Society: a nonprofit organization with a global mission to advance the science, technology and application of welding and allied joining and cutting processes, including brazing, soldering and thermal spraying. The AWS University of Alberta (UofA) AWS Student Chapter was established in 2010 in Edmonton, Alberta in partnership with the Canadian Centre for Welding and Joining (CCWJ) to provide an opportunity for students to learn about and participate in the welding community. Since its inception, the student chapter has been actively organizing and hosting events including an annual seminar with world renowned speakers, open welding labs for the university, technical talks, CCWJ facility tours, and seminars. The growth and impact the chapter has had on welding in the province in such a short period of time has been extraordinary.
