On Monday 26th March some of UOW Steel Research Hub PhD candidates and researchers came together to attend a short training course on statistics training, specifically on experimental design.

The presenter was Greg Knight, formerly from BlueScope, who is a well-regarded statistician/practitioner, particularly amongst researchers and in steel product development circles.

Greg’s personal goals were to introduce the use of Statistics and Experimental Design to the skill set of young technologists.

Some of the topics covered were:

  • Statistical Design of Experiments, Industrial Experimental Design
  • Analysis of Data
  • Presentation of Results.

The short course was very well received and is highly likely that there will be some 1-on-1 follow ups with the Hub researchers i.e. specific projects requiring some further input.
