Overview

Cutting, assembling, and repairing steel structures ranging from buildings to bridges to construction equipment, using a wide range of metals. Steel structures are crucial in all areas of construction, from the buildings themselves to the tower cranes needed to assemble them. You will need to understand how the different types of steel need to be used, and how to cut, join, and weld them both in engineering workshops and on site. For the Metal Fabricator, that means being able to understand engineering drawings and then building the actual structure accurately.
