Earn your Graduate Micro-Credential in Statistical Quality Control and Design of Experiments (DOE)
The Graduate Micro-Credential in Statistical Quality Control and Design of Experiments (DOE)program is designed for professionals who are responsible for product development and/or manufacturing process improvement who would like to increase their skills in applied statistical software (such as Minitab).Students participating in this program will gain skills in applying statistics to a wide variety of manufacturing and design engineering situations.
Program benefits include: reducing part-to-part variation, lowering cost, improving reliability, and factoring out the “noise” in a manufacturing process to determine the most significant control factors.
Taught by Tom Keenan, a leading industry expert in applied statistical software, this graduate-level micro-credential is a practical and industry-relevant way to gain expertise quickly in an ever-changing landscape and realize a competitive edge.
In just two classes, you will earn a micro-credential and digital badge to bolster your resume and online profile. Badges are a convenient way to digitally showcase and share expertise and help differentiate yourself in the market.
Students have the option to use coursework from this graduate micro-credential to continue in a graduate certificate or master’s degree program in manufacturing engineering or mechanical engineering offered by the School of Engineering.
