The Lean Systems Program is a graduate certificate suitable for students in engineering and non-engineering professions e.g. food production, business and health care. Lean systems is a proven methodology for reducing waste, improving productivity, and increasing the bottom line while maintaining quality and customer satisfaction.
This program was established over 20 years ago when the College of Engineering partnered with Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky to teach and research lean systems. This partnership remains active today. As a result, our course content is current with carefully designed hands-on lab work, uses engaging teaching techniques, and is consistent with Toyota, the originator and leading practitioner of Lean Systems.
Program requirements may change at any time. Contact the DGC of your intended program to confirm requirements.
Please note that federal financial aid is not available for certificate programs, but other financial resources may be available on the Financial Aid page.
