The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) introduced a criterion starting with their 1992-1993 site visits that ""Students must demonstrate a knowledge of the application of statistics to engineering problems."" Since most engineering curricula are filled with requirements in their own discipline, they generally do not have time for a traditional two semesters of probability and statistics. Attempts to condense that material into a single semester often results in so much time being spent on probability that the statistics useful for designing and analyzing engineer
