ASQ Student Branch - Engaging Professional Leaders

The ASQ ODU Student Branch's mission is to provide ODU students with opportunities to engage their professional careers through professional membership in the American Society for Quality, Lean Six Sigma training and certification, and networking with working quality professionals in the sponsoring ASQ 1128 Tidewater Section.  The ODU Student Branch and the ASQ 1128 Tidewater Section hold a joint meeting each fall semester, and ODU Student Branch members can attend all ASQ 1128 Tidewater Section monthly meetings and plant tours.

The ASQ ODU Student Branch provides Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training and certification to its members.  The LSS Green Belt training covers the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Green Belt body of knowledge and prepares students to sit for the ASQ CCSSGB examination once they attain required work experience.

Additionally, the Branch hosts a monthly R Users Group forum open to all ODU students.  The R Users Group forum provides introductory training in the R statistical analysis application, the RStudio integrated development environment, and available specialized statistical packages.
