Mon
8:00am - 9:00am
This course is intended for all engineers as well as non-engineers, professionals and students and is appropriate for both technical and non-technical audiences. The Yellow Belt course is not a pre-requisite for the Green Belt course but is a good first step for those who would like to pursue their Green Belt certification. The course will be delivered via self-paced, pre-recorded lectures with built in self assessments (non-graded quizzes) from May 27-June 30 . Students will receive support via virtual office hours and email with the instructor and/or teaching assistant.

8:00am - 9:00am
This course will run from May 27-July 7 and cover the fundamentals of Finite Element Method through typical mechanical engineering examples. Stiffness method will be introduced for the solution procedure. Knowledge of a programming language (Matlab or Python are preferred) will be very helpful. Application of stiffness method to solve truss, beam, frame, and 1-D fluid flow problems will be taught in this course.

9:00am - 10:00am
This course will run from May 27-June 30 and teaches the foundational concepts of data analytics that is the fundamentals of probability and statistics. Data science is a growing field of study and practice as data is quickly becoming the world most abundant and untapped resource. Social, mobile and the proliferation of interconnectivity via the internet has led to vast amounts of data; however, we all require the ability to transform these raw data into meaningful information to help make better and faster decisions. Introduction to Probability and Statistics provides the class participant with the means to convert several forms of data into usable information.

9:00am - 10:00am
This is a 5-week online course that will run from May 27-July 7 with a final take home exam given in week 6. This course will cover fundamentals of using ANSYS APDL for engineering simulations. "Why", "what" and "how" are the questions that will be answered for each necessary step during engineering analysis. Proper modeling and meshing techniques, and extraction and interpretation of the results (derived from simulations) will be taught. Course Certificates and Digital Badges* will be issued to passing students.

Mon
8:00am - 9:00am
This course will run from June 10-August 29 and is designed for Lean Six Sigma team leaders. The course expands upon the skill-set taught in the Green Belt certification and gives valuable business tools to organize, coordinate and lead your organization in achieving process and operational excellence. Instructors will emphasizes the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) methodology through analytical and quantitative tools as well as project management, leadership and organizational methods and provide one year to complete a successful Black Belt Project.
