The Department of Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management recently announced that 100% of the students in the Lean Six Sigma Certificate Program took and passed the certification exam with at least an 80%.

This brings the total number of graduated Green Belts across all engineering majors to 64 since the spring of 2017, when the University began collaborating with Solomon EOS to create the program.

Lean Six Sigma is an effective business and engineering methodology that emphasizes elimination of waste and inefficiency through data collection and resulting analysis. It emphasizes employment of a complex set of analysis tools to both collect and draw conclusions related to productivity and efficiency. Although Lean Six Sigma has its origins in manufacturing, in recent years the methodology has been applied to customer service, health care, information technology, and many other industries.
