Student Testimonials

Belkys Benzo, ASU Student

One of the best takeaways the conference offered me was the ability to network and find mentors within a given field. Networking helps you build your brand and find those mentors who are willing to educate and help those mentees with their careers in quality.

Student (School unknown)

From an auto to aero industry to a foundry shop to a falcon manufacturer, this conference explains how important quality is in every field. ... I learned a great deal from the conference that I will use not only at my profession but in any work I do.

Attending the conference not only gave me an edge for my master’s degree, but also provided a great networking opportunity with industry people. I am looking forward to the 2015 ASQ World Conference in Tennessee.
