Welding is the most common way of permanently joining metal parts. Briefly, heat is applied to metal pieces, melting and fusing them to form a permanent bond.  

Because of its strength, welding is used in shipbuilding, automobile manufacturing and repair, aerospace applications and thousands of other manufacturing activities. Welding also is used to join beams when constructing buildings, bridges, and other structures, and to join pipes in pipelines, power plants and refineries.

Welding is a requisite skill in today's building boom. Put quite simply, to learn the principles of welding is to advance in the field.
