Graduate Certificate in Statistics

Training in statistical methods is a required part of the education of graduate students in engineering and the sciences. The Graduate Certificate in Statistics is designed to provide additional education in statistical thinking and methodology over and above the basic coursework taken by the typical graduate student. This transcriptable certificate will provide a clear record of additional training in statistics for future graduate programs or employers. The Graduate Certificate will also be of interest to those currently employed in technical fields that utilize statistics in the and to post-baccalaureate students.
