Course detail

# Statistical Methods in Engineering

Technicians sometimes use statistics to describe the results of an experiment. This process is referred to as data analysis or descriptive statistics. Technicians also use statistics another way. If the entire population of interest is not accessible to them, they often observe only a portion of the population (a sample) and use statistics to answer questions about the whole population. This process called inferential statistics is the main focus of the course.

Aims

We want to show the importance of statistics in engineering and we have taken two specific measures to accomplish this goal. First, to explain that statistics is an integral part of engineer's work. Second, we try to present a practical example of each topic as soon as possible.
