Course Description:
This module offers a balanced, streamlined one-semester introduction to Engineering Statistics that emphasizes the statistical tools most needed by practicing engineers. Using real engineering problems with real data taken from engineering journal publications, students see how statistics fits within the methods of engineering problem solving. The module teaches students how to think like an engineer when analysing real data. Mini projects, tailored to each engineering discipline, are intended to simulate problems that students will encounter professionally during their future careers. Emphasis is placed on Excel as a computer environment for tackling engineering problems that require the use of statistics.
