Class projects completed by graduate students enrolled at East Carolina University will save two North Carolina-based companies more than $1 million over the next decade.
Graduate students Brittany Ryan and Robert Johnson completed their projects while earning the Lean Six-Sigma Black Belt certification. The program is designed to equip students with the methodologies of Lean and Six-Sigma, which focus on streamlining industrial and business processes.
The College of Engineering and Technology is a founding partner in the consortium based, Internet-enabled PhD program in Technology Management. At the conclusion of the program, graduates will have developed skills in research procedures, will have acquired expertise in instructional processes, and will be able to provide service to the industrial and educational community.
The program maintains most of the traditional requirements characteristic of advanced graduate study, but is unique in using the resources of a consortium of five universities linked together by alternative communication systems. These member universities have programs staffed by faculty having expertise in many areas of technology.
Four technical specializations are currently available: digital communications systems, construction management, manufacturing systems, quality systems, and human resource development. ECU provides the lead on specializations in digital communication and manufacturing systems. Students identify a “home university” based on their technical specialization and/or geographic location
