Short-term Technical Certificate - 18 Credit Hours

Division: Science, Mathematics and Engineering
Department: Industrial & Systems Engineering Technology
Effective as of Fall 2020

What is the program about?

This short-term certificate provides both theory and practice in measuring parts and processes, analyzing the result and determining the forms of error that contribute to the uncertainty of the measurements. A good measurement system is an underlying requirement for improving quality, throughput and waste problems. This certificate focuses on calibration and dimensional measurements, including coordinate measurements. Pressure, temperature and mass are also covered. The courses in this short-term certificate apply directly to the Industrial Engineering Technology (OPTIO.S.AAS) degree.

Program Outcomes

  • Apply problem-solving and quality improvement tools and processes.
  • Apply statistical process control techniques and capability analyses to determine the state of statistical control and conformity to product and process requirements.
  • Plan, control and assure product and process quality.

Career Opportunities

This certificate provides sufficient background to pass the ASQ certified calibration technician exam and prepares individuals for jobs in that field.


This certificate will prepare students for either the American Society for Quality Certified Calibration Technician or Certified Quality Technician.
