MATC offers three new certificate programs. One of them, Sustainable Operations Certificate Program, is already in the MATC Catalog (page 162). All of them are 100 level courses. The others, Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate and The Lean Certificate Program, will be published in the 2012-13 MATC Catalog.

The Sustainable Operations Certificate Program will prepare students to efficiently and effectively manage the total commercial and industrial facility and other operations (MATC Catalog 2011-12.)

The Lean Certificate consists of one three-credit course which covers strategies to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. The Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate consists of two accelerated courses that focus on the Six Sigma strategic approach to implementing quality, process and business efficiency improvement through the use of statistical and other analytical tools. Students also take a "project" class in which they apply the methodology to a real problem in their place of employment.

A new Associate Degree, Quality Engineering Technology Program, will also be placed in next year's MATC Catalog.

Dr. Joseph J. Jacobsen, Associate Dean, Environmental Studies of MATC, said, "With a solid foundation in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), Quality Engineering Technology students will be prepared with the tools needed to be successful in many industries. When students complete the degree in quality engineering technology they will add value to an industry and be able to make their industry successful. Also, strong emphasis is placed on reducing costs by minimizing resource use. Quality methods such as Lean and Six Sigma are used to show how to reduce waste, improve operations, and make the right decisions."

For more information and to apply for the Spring Semester, students are to contact the Quality Engineering Counselor, Suzanne Moore at 414-571-4599.
