The revolutions in lean manufacturing and quality have swept the world and broadened into the disciplines of lean enterprise and six sigma. Six Sigma’s emphasis is on improving existing capabilities. Six Sigma is a set of structured methodologies, problem-solving tools, and advanced statistical methods for analyzing and improving processes, product designs, and services on a broad range of metrics, especially cost, quality, time, and variability. It moves beyond treating symptoms and short-term problems to the elimination of root causes, thereby emphasizing lasting improvement.

This certificate, offered by the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering , is available to ISE graduate students and local professionals.

Major-Specific Graduation Requirements
