Leadership support from Weldco Companies provided the impetus for the creation of this critical research chair and centre. The Weldco / Industry Chair in Welding and Joining will be an integral part of the new Canadian Centre for Welding and Joining. The establishment of this centre will provide the University of Alberta with a unique opportunity to develop a strong research program that bridges the development of scientific knowledge with the needs and expertise of industrial partners in Canada.
The Faculty of Engineering would like to thank our industrial partners for their generosity and leadership support.
