Quality Engineering

The quality engineering minor, which is open to all students, strengthens your ability to analyze the quality of products and services, as well as the efficiency of the systems that produce them. It is open to students outside the industrial engineering and manufacturing engineering programs. Courses in analytical math and statistics give you measurement tools. Additionally, systems courses help you understand how processes work together.
