Meeting customer expectations is of vital importance to the success of every organization. In the Quality Engineering Technology program, you'll gain the skills necessary to engage in continuous improvement activities as well as traditional quality and inspection duties. You'll learn how to use structured problem-solving methodologies including Six Sigma, 8D and PDSA (Plan-Do-Study-Act) to identify root causes and implement corrective actions. You'll also learn to apply the tools and techniques that support these methodologies. This program allows specialization in either industrial manufacturing where product inspection and measurement takes place or in food and paper processing where laboratory work is more common.
