Next month, 15 students will embark on QUEST’s first trip to Silicon Valley, where they will have the chance to visit 12 businesses and learn first-hand about design, innovation, and quality. These students will have the opportunity to see reality-centered applications of QUEST tools while developing their professional skills. Our goal is to reduce the cost of this trip by 50 percent for each of the students. Show your support today!

Quality Enhancement Systems and Teams (QUEST) is a multidisciplinary, reality-centered program for University of Maryland undergraduates from three participating schools. Students participate in a challenging course of study that focuses on quality management, process improvement, and system design through teamwork and co-curricular programming. The program combines diverse knowledge, skills, and perspectives to enhance the professional and personal development of our students.
