Graduate Certificate in Applied Lean Leadership

The Department of Engineering Technology offers a Graduate Certificate in Applied Lean Leadership.

The certificate is intended for students with a bachelor's degree who are currently working full-time in a production or service industry, and are specifically interested in learning about Lean principles and practices.

Through more than 160 hours of instruction by practitioners of the principles and practices of Lean, the program provides students with competitive knowledge and skills for jobs in which Lean is practiced and a cost-effective way to upgrade technical skills in Lean techniques.

Based on the Society of Manufacturing Engineers' "Lean Certification Body of Knowledge," a student who completes the certificate program will be expected to be able to pass the Lean Certification Exam at the Bronze level.

For admission, students must apply through the graduate school, but are not required to complete the Graduate Record Examination.
