As a student progresses through the required Tech Management courses with proper planning and a successful cap-stone project that finalizes the process, he/she can graduate with a Six Sigma Greenbelt certification. What will Green Belt Six Sigma certification bring to the student?
- It helps the student to demonstrate proficiency in the subject matter
- It increases the students desirability by employers
- It can potentially increase starting salaries
- Helps student to implement high quality projects and procedures in the work place.
However one large barrier to achieving SS certification has been the cost associated with gaining the certification. The costs are generally in the thousands depending on where the certification is obtained.
Utilizing Senior Capstone teams we are able to develop a process that outlines which Technology Management courses meet the requirements for Greenbelt certification. Another capstone team outlined a procedure for tracking the stu-dents' grades and plotted a road map they could follow.
As the student follows the roadmap throughout their Tech Management courses it will culminate with a successful capstone project that finalizes the requirements for certification. As the program stands now, there is no added burden to the student we just simply have developed a way to help them achieve a very important certification that will greatly benefit them in today's technological business world.
