The Integrated Lean and SixSigma Certification program in the Department of Integrated Systems Engineering provides ISE Undergraduate and Graduate Students with the opportunity to augment their ISE degrees with an ILSS Certificate and potentially a Certification.

Certification requires successful completion of a very rigorous “Black Belt ILSS Foundation Course” (ISE 5810) and then a two semester ILSS Project (ISE 5811-12).  This sequence would typically span two academic years with a Summer Internship in between the BB Foundation Course and the Certification Capstone Project.  Certification requires proof, evidence that the process improvement worked, it is sustainable, and that the business case has been approved and signed off by a Finance Rep and the Executive Sponsor.  This leads to a “DARK” Green Belt Certification.
