Engineering technology graduates, however, are not qualified to register as professional engineers under the same terms as graduates with degrees in engineering.
About 555,000 engineering jobs were found in manufacturing industries, and another 378,000 wage and salary jobs were in the professional, scientific, and technical services sector, primarily in architectural, engineering, and related services and in scientific research and development services.
It is important for engineers, as it is for those working in other technical and scientific occupations, to continue their education throughout their careers because much of their value to their employer depends on their knowledge of the latest technology.

 Statistics and Probability for Engineering Applications
It is becoming more imperative that graduate engineers have solid statistical know-how, yet engineers in industry typically are not well-prepared to use statistics and they are fuzzy about how to apply statistical tools and techniques.
In addition, the book provides an "engineering problem solver" section that directs the reader to the relevant section of the book for the problem they are trying to solve.
This introductory textbook on statistics and probability is aimed at two groups: practicing engineers in industries and engineering students at about the freshman/sophomore level.

 Engineering statistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Engineering statistics is a branch of statistics that has three subtopics which are particular to engineering:
Quality control and process control use statistics as a tool to manage conformance to specifications of manufacturing processes and their products.
Time and methods engineering use statistics to study repetitive operations in manufacturing in order to set standards and find optimum (in some sense) manufacturing procedures.

 62: Statistics
Statistics is the science of obtaining, synthesizing, predicting, and drawing inferences from data.
Elementary calculations of mean and standard variation suffice to summarize a large, finite, normally-distributed dataset; the field of Statistics exists since data are not usually so nicely given.
If we do not know all the elements of the dataset, we must discuss sampling and experimental design; if the data are not normal we must use other parameters to summarize them, or resort to nonparametric methods; if multiple data are involved, we study the measures of interaction among the variables.
