Abstract: Six sigma has been proved to be a successful quality improvement newlineconcept in reducing the process variation and defect rate in all critical newlinebusiness processes. It is used to realize breakthrough improvement in process newlineperformance that yields significant savings to both service and manufacturing newlineorganizations. Six sigma is being implemented in plenty of service industries newlinelike financial services, banking sectors and hospitals and so on. Though it is newlineapplied in many service sectors, educational service sector has shown a slow newlineprogress in adopting this concept. Engineering education is the backbone of any society because it is newlinethe quality of engineering education that decides the quality of human newlineresources in a country. In developing countries like India, any degree in newlineengineering is a boon to an individual and his/her family members as it gives newlinethem good job opportunities and good salary. newlineAt present, there are 3495 engineering institutions and about one newlinemillion students are graduated in engineering degree in a year from these newlineinstitutions in India. In spite of the huge output, the employability of newlineengineering graduates in India is about only 10% of its total output. The academic performance of the students is not good enough as required by newlineindustries. Parents of students have been paying huge amount of money from newlinetheir savings, by selling their properties or by getting loan from banks to make newlinetheir wards engineers. In this regard, this doctoral work illustrates successful newlinedeployment of six sigma to enhance the academic performance and newlineemployability of the engineering students of the self-financing private nonautonomous newlineengineering colleges affiliated to a particular regional technical newlineUniversity in India and approved by AICTE, New Delhi. In order to provide solutions to the problems defined, the following newlinemethodology has been adopted. First of all, the self-financing engineering newlinecolleges have been prepared for effective and efficient implementation of six newlinesigma concept. newline
