Lean Engineering Six Sigma Green Belt Certification

Students have the opportunity to earn a Green Belt Certification which provides students with an introduction to the tools, techniques and methodologies that will empower them to lead Lean Six Sigma projects in their organizations. Students learn the problem-solving framework for improving processes -- Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) -- and also receive instruction in the tools for streamlining production and services from end to end. By course completion, you will be well-versed in the knowledge and skills needed for successfully leading a Green Belt-level project to reduce or eliminate waste, lower defects in your organization’s products and processes, and improve customer satisfaction.

To earn this certificate, students must complete the following three courses with a B average: 

  • INSY 4800 - Senior Design
  • INSY 5330/6330 - Six Sigma
  • INSY 5800/6800 - Lean Systems

Senior Design is already required for the BISE while Six Sigma and Lean Systems count towards INSY/TECH electives.  

Once you have completed the three courses, complete the certification request form and submit it to Student Services Coordinator Branden Farmer and you will receive your certificate following graduation.
