MFET-797
3 Credits
This course provides the MMSI graduate students an opportunity to complete their degree requirements by addressing a practical real-world challenge using the knowledge and skills acquired throughout their studies. This course is not only the culmination of a student's course work but also an indicator of the student's ability to use diverse knowledge to provide a tangible solution to a problem. The capstone project topic can be in the areas of product development, manufacturing automation, management system, quality management or electronics packaging. The course requires a comprehensive project report and a final presentation.
MFET-798
0 Credits
Continuation of Capstone
STAT-792
3 Credits
This course is designed to provide a capstone experience for MS students at the end of the graduate studies, and will require a synthesis of knowledge obtained from earlier coursework.
STAT-790
1 - 6 Credits
For students working toward the MS degree who are writing a research thesis.
STAT-799
1 - 3 Credits
Credit will be assigned at the discretion of the department. A written proposal of the work involved will be required of the candidate, and may be modified at the discretion of the faculty involved before approval is given to proceed.

STAT-701
3 Credits
This course is an introduction to experimental design with emphases on both foundational and practical aspects. Topics include the role of statistics in scientific experimentation, completely randomized designs, randomized complete block designs, Latin square designs, incomplete block designs, nested designs, general factorial designs, split-plot designs, two-level fractional factorial designs, and response-surface methodology.
STAT-784
3 Credits
The course develops statistical methods for modeling and analysis of data for which the response variable is categorical. Topics include: contingency tables, matched pair analysis, Fisher's exact test, logistic regression, analysis of odds ratios, log linear models, multi-categorical logit models, ordinal and paired response analysis.
MATH-252
3 Credits
This course covers basic statistical concepts, sampling theory, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, point estimation, and simple linear regression. The statistical software package MINITAB will be used for data analysis and statistical applications.
STAT-614
2 Credits
Review of fundamental probability theory; review of key distributions in statistics; probability plotting; linear combinations of random variables; hypothesis testing; confidence intervals and other statistical intervals; use of simulations; importance of assumptions; multiple-comparisons; goodness-of-fit tests. This course does not count as credit toward either the CQAS advanced certificates or MS degree.
