Description: This paper discusses the experience of teaching Six Sigma as a course project in a junior level Electronics Engineering Technology course. Instead of using a lecture only style of teaching, the Six Sigma methodology was applied during a course project. Over a period of seven weeks, the students learned and practiced Six Sigma theory and processes. They followed the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) process to improve a given design. Six Sigma tools such as Critical to Quality (CTQ), Quality Function Deployment (QFD), Failure Mode Effects and Analysis (FMEA) and Critical Path Method (CPM) were introduced to the students. The business aspect of the product development process was added to the technical design contents to make the project more like a real world experience for the students. A survey conducted after the completion of the project showed the effectiveness of the Six Sigma teaching.
