Lack of Six Sigma Greenbelt Certification is limiting the job opportunities for our otherwise highly qualified students. Six Sigma certification is strongly valued by many organizations in industry for its standardized problem solving process and adherence to statistically rigorous quality tools. The concepts that make up the Six Sigma philosophy and tools are already contained within the industrial engineering curriculum. The certification program would increase recognition from employers that students in South Dakota are acquiring these skills.
Students should contact the program coordinator for the application procedure and appropriate forms.
Once an application is filed, it is included in the degree audit form. It is the responsibility of the student’s advisor to certify certification completion along with the final degree audit.
