Research Methods and Statistics (4000ENG)

As an engineer you will be faced with problems that require you to devise innovative and practical solutions. Some problems may be simple and you will solve them drawing on knowledge you acquired through your course of study or using your accumulated experiences. On the other hand, there will be cases where your experience and academic training are not sufficient. In these cases, you will need to engage in research. Being able to source valid and credible information and analyse information statistically in order to formulate viable solutions is an important skill that all engineers need and which Engineers Australia expects you to have. The research and statistics skills you learn in this course will also help you throughout your studies at Griffith University. Research is a key component in Undergraduate degrees at Griffith University. Moreover, the skills learnt in this course are of vital importance to students who intend to pursue higher degree research studies. Therefore, this course aims to equip you with the skills needed to conduct valid research and statistical analysis be it in academic or industrial practice context.
