Course Summary: The objective of this course is to provide students with a general background in the application of various statistical and
econometric analysis techniques. The course will present a number of model-estimation methods that are used in the analysis of engineering and scientific data. It is important to note that the methods
presented can be used in a wide variety of data-analysis applications and go well beyond the techniques typically covered in statistics
courses. The course will emphasize model estimation and application, but underlying theory and limitations will be discussed
to ensure that the methods are properly applied and understood.
Time and Location: 15 - 19 June, 2015; QUT Gardens Point Campus, 2 George Street, Brisbane.
