  • EMEN 5005 - Introduction to Applied Statistical Methods
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019 / Spring 2020
    Covers statistical reasoning and statistical analysis for applications related to business and engineering decision making. Topics include an introduction to engineering and applied research, descriptive statistical analysis and its foundations, inferential statistics to include estimation and hypothesis testing using both traditional parametric as well as nonparametric procedures for research situations involving one or two groups of treatment conditions.
  • EMEN 5610 - Advanced Statistical Methods for Engineering Research
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    Combines intermediate and advanced statistical methods (Two- and Three-Way ANOVA and post hoc analyses for a large variety of specific designs). Real data sets are employed permitting a focus on engineering research in support of business decision making through the integration of cost benefit analysis and process performance. Parametric as well as nonparametric methods of analysis are included.
  • EMEN 5620 - Data Mining and Screening Experiments for Engineering Research
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020
    Combines intermediate and advanced statistical methods with practical research applications. Develops commonly used statistical models such as Two and Three-Way Analysis of Variance and the analysis of Fractional Factorial Designs for the solution of common business and industrial research problems. The statistical models are implemented and interpreted in the context of actual data sets using available statistical software.
  • EMEN 5900 - Research Methods and Experimental Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020
    Explores commonly used research methods including analytical, agreement, descriptive and relational methods; experimental design including incorporation, nesting, blocking and controlling; threats to the internal and external validity of research. Also reviewed are sampling procedures and considerations, measurement validity and reliability, and managing the research study.
  • EMEN 6805 - Capstone Preparation
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    Students determine capstone research question, conduct literature review, develop research methodology and project plan, write a proposal, and select capstone committee.
  • EMEN 6810 - Capstone Completion
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Continues EMEN 6805 as the second half of a two-course sequence for the engineering management capstone project. Students conduct agreed-upon research, research and analyze results, develop recommendations, write a final report, and present the project to the committee for evaluation.
