By Dr. Farnoosh Naderkhani – ASQ Member, Assistant Professor @ Concordia, Student Outreach Committee Chair.
In memory of Eric Stern – a respectfully remembered ASQ Montreal Section Leader and Concordia Alumni, the “Eric Stern Award” is granted to Master students at Concordia. The 2020 Eric Stern Award competition is organized by the Student Outreach Committee of the ASQ Montreal Section, together with the rest of the Leadership Team at ASQ Montreal, and Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science. The Eric Stern Award competition is open to full time Master of Science (MASc) or Master of Engineering (MEng) students registered at Concordia Institute for Information System Engineering (CIISE) or Industrial Engineering from Mechanical, Aerospace and Industrial Engineering (MAIE) at Concordia University.
Interested students are invited to participate in this competition with a $500 CAD award to win. The focus of this competition is on individually defined quality related projects on topics such as inspection, defect detection, and quality control, to name but a few. We hope the students see the exercise as a rewarding learning exercise and small financial incentive to compete and win, as well as learn more and appreciate a fellow alumnus that made his mark with several societies, not just ASQ and Concordia.
The deadline to submit projects (report of maximum 5 pages) is October 31, 2020. The reports should be emailed to Dr. Farnoosh Naderkhani via firstname.lastname@example.org. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Naderkhani.
