University Programs


AISC University Programs has entered into an exciting partnership with the Ironworker Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust (IMPACT) to offer learning opportunities for students at local IMPACT facilities to provide a better understanding of the work that ironworkers do. Students can participate in hands-on activities such as welding, cutting, rigging, and climbing columns. 

You are encouraged to connect with a local IMPACT facility at one of their 150 locations around the country to explore the range of learning opportunities now available. Learn more below!



In addition to offering tours and demonstrations to steel classes, as a supporting affiliate of the Student Steel Bridge Competition (SSBC), IMPACT facilities across the country are opening their doors to support SSBC teams. SSBC teams are encouraged to maximize their involvement in the fabrication process, but some may not have access to the necessary resources or facilities on their own campus. 

Local IMPACT facilities may be able to assist teams with one or more of the following:

  • Provide welding and other fabrication skills training



IMPACT has over 150 Ironworker Apprenticeship Centers across the country. Find the facility that is closest to you, and contact them! Click the button below to access the list of all facilities and their contact information.

(Note that not all facilities are the same, and some may not have adequate space or personnel to assist with your request. If you do not receive a response or if a facility cannot help you, please try a different facility.)
