The Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate Program is a 6-credit hour certificate program housed in the Department of Engineering. Six Sigma is a method of continuous process improvement. First developed at Motorola in the 1980s, the systematic approach of Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) and the associated tools (such as the fishbone diagram, the Pareto chart, and ANOVA) have been widely and successfully applied. Upon completion of this certificate, a student will be able to play a major role in process improvement and will be prepared to achieve the Black Belt and Master Black Belt certifications through their company.
Student Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate Program are expected to have the ability to:
- Collect and analyze data, using appropriate statistical tools; and
- Select and apply appropriate Six Sigma tools to improve a process.
Outcomes Assessment Activities
Within the department’s existing assessment structures, the performance of Certificate students in the specific courses will be evaluated separately from other students.
