Statistical Metrology Short Courses


Staff members of the Statistical Engineering Division regularly offer short courses on uncertainty analysis, design of experiments, and other topics in statistical metrology at NIST, at conferences open to the public, and at other government agencies. Prospective attendees of short courses at NIST include NIST scientists, engineers and technicians, industrial metrologists, staff members of other national laboratories, and metrologists from other national metrology institutes.



Courses consist of lecture, discussion, and hands-on exercises designed to give users practical experience with the featured statistical methods and software tools.
