COS Holiday Craft Fair is this Saturday

COS Welding Department has much to offer

Anything made of metal, no matter how big or small, can be welded. Examples are everywhere, from vehicles to ships, aircraft, rockets and more. Construction is a huge market and buildings, bridges and highways would be impossible to build without welding, as would oil and natural-gas pipelines, giant wind turbines and solar panels. Welders help install and maintain boilers, air conditioning units, complex systems, and other large structures, as well as piping for industrial, commercial and residential facilities. Welding is even used by artists to create sculptures and decorative items.

There is almost no limit to what welding can do, especially since developments in the technology continually improve its accuracy, quality and versatility. Welding is, in fact, an increasingly high-tech skill. Welders are being trained to operate robots and other automated systems that use powerful lasers, electron beams and sometimes explosives to bond metals. The ability to work with computers and program software is consequently vital to the successful operation of these systems.

College of the Siskiyous offers many certificate and degree programs for students looking for specific areas of training and certification. Our Welding Program offers instruction in basic and advanced welding. All types of welding machines are covered in the instruction such as electric arc, oxyacetylene, gas tungsten arc welding, dual shield, and wire feed. (more…)

North State Giving Tuesday is supporting students


In January 2016, the COS Foundation along with the College of the Siskiyous developed a new scholarship called the “Siskiyou Promise” for graduates of Siskiyou and Modoc County high schools. The Siskiyou Promise Scholarship is offered to every Siskiyou County and Modoc County high school graduate who enrolls at COS the fall semester immediately following their high school graduation (first eligible to apply for the Siskiyou Promise was Class of 2016). This fall, approximately 115 Siskiyou and Modoc County high school graduates are currently attending College of the Siskiyous as a Siskiyou Promise scholarship recipient.

The Siskiyou Promise Scholarship is intended to be a “middle dollar” scholarship used to cover tuition and other mandatory fees not covered by federal or state grant sources. The Siskiyou Promise Scholarship helps address these issues by offering a two-year scholarship so students can focus on their education – rather than their finances!

On November 29, our community will come together for North State Giving Tuesday, an online event, where you can donate to the COS Foundation and our Siskiyou Promise Scholarship to support students attending College of the Siskiyous. For 12 hours, from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm, you can “give where you live” online at www.northstategives.org. (more…)
