  • Objectives
    This part-time program would be of interest to people employed in quality engineering functions - quality control and quality assurance, receiving and in-process inspection, and to co-ordinate measuring machine operators, manufacturing technicians and technologists. Topics in quality control and assurance are covered in depth and in a practical and realistic manner. On completion of the program, the graduate will be able to apply the proper techniques and procedures to solve practical manufacturing problems with respect to quality. Graduates will receive a College Certificate which is recognized by industry. This certificate will help in preparing to write the American Society of Quality's certification examinations such as Certified Quality Technician (CQT), or Certified Quality Engineer (CQE), once qualified work experience is obtained.
