Associate Professor Jeffrey Herrmann, who holds a joint appointment in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Institute for Systems Research, will serve as Associate Director for the University of Maryland Quality Enhancement Systems and Teams (QUEST) Honors Fellows Program starting July 1, 2007.

QUEST is a unique undergraduate experience found only at College Park that unites honor students in business, engineering, and computer, mathematical and physical sciences. Administered through the Robert H. Smith School of Business, the program offers special courses and experiences that are focused on cross-functional collaboration, quantitative methods, interactive planning and quality principles.

Each year, QUEST admits approximately 75 students from the academic disciplines mentioned above to participate in the three year program. QUEST collaborates with professional partners representing organizational settings of all kinds that enable student interaction with real-world applications of the quality approaches, tools and methods learned in the program courses.
