Welding BuildingHILLSBORO – Welding students on the Hill College Hillsboro Campus are taking classes in a brand new, state-of-the-art building located Wallace Campus, south of the main campus. The Wallace Welding and Industrial Maintenance Building will be dedicated 5 – 7 p.m., Thursday, September 19.   

Upon seeing the building for the first time, an anonymous student exclaimed: “Wow, this is a nice building…it makes me want to be a better welder.”   

The 14,438 square foot building includes a 5,800 square foot indoor welding lab, 16 vented welding stations, three virtual reality welding simulators, two classrooms, one computer lab and a CNC plasma cutter.

“This building is much needed to accommodate our ever-increasing enrollment,” Welding Instructor Joseph Price said. “It will also give us the ability to add new technology as it becomes available.” 

The ceremony is open to the public and will include a ribbon cutting and remarks from Hill College President Dr. Sheryl Kappus and Hillsboro Mayor Honorable Edith Turner Omberg among others.
