Prerequisite Courses

There are no prerequisite courses for this program, however if an applicant does not have an undergraduate engineering degree, there may be some additional courses required for acceptance in the program. This will be determined by the program director in consideration of the applicant's work experience and undergraduate degree.

Possible considerations may be:



The Industrial Engineering Department provides students with a unique opportunity to pursue certification in the Six Sigma discipline.  The Six Sigma methodology found its roots in the manufacturing sector as a way to effectively apply data to drive strategic organizational decisions.  Since that time, the successful implementation and application of Six Sigma methodologies has seen the application of these techniques expand to financial institutions, the service sector, hospital administration and many more.  

Students are provided the ability to achieve both a Green and a Black Belt Certification.  Both courses provide in depth training in the DMAIC process.  Students also explore the application of Change Management in Six Sigma projects and the relationship of Six Sigma and Lean techniques.
