Welding is the process of joining two materials, usually metals, by applying high heat. This is followed by a cool down which structurally alters the bond and joins the two objects together. Welding requires extensive knowledge of chemistry and physics so as to achieve the perfect results.

Types of Welding
TIG and MIG are two of the most prominent welding techniques used today. Metal Inert Gas (MIG) is a type of arc welding process where a wire is fed into the weld pool and current is passed through it to create enough heat for melting it. All this time, a layer of inter gas surrounds the region so that no elements from the surrounding contaminates the welding. Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) is a similar arc welding process which also uses an inert gas for the same purpose. The only difference is that instead of a metallic wire, a tungsten electrode is used here. Other welding techniques include shielded metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding etc.
On the basis of how it is done, welding can also be classified as manual or automated. Automated welding uses a robot to perform the welding process. Since it uses a machine, this process is faster, safer and more precise. Manual welding, as the name suggests, is done by human professionals. Despite not being as fast or precise as the automated one, manual welding has its own benefits. Due to shorter lead time and low capital required, it is ideal for welding processes that require a little work on a small budget. Apart from this, it is far easier to introduce changes in manual welding compared to automated one (where you would have to reprogram the instructions).
Welds Based on Configuration
Joint between two overlapping components made by depositing a fillet weld around the periphery of a hole in one component so as to join it to the surface of the other component exposed through the hole.
Weld made by filling a hole in one component of a workpiece with filler metal so as to join it to the surface of an overlapping component exposed through the hole (the hole can be circular or oval).
Based on Penetration
Full penetration weld
Welded joint where the weld metal fully penetrates the joint with complete root fusion. In US the preferred term is complete joint penetration weld (CJP, see AWS D1.1).
Partial penetration weld
Weld in which the fusion penetration is intentionally less than full penetration. In the US the preferred term is partial joint penetration weld (PJP).
