    The Certificate in Applied Statistical Modeling equips undergraduate students with the tools necessary to understand how to apply statistics to their primary field of study. This certificate program is designed to complement diverse degree programs and to appeal to students across the University in engineering, science, economics, mathematics, and many other disciplines. Certificate students will fulfill a two-course sequence on applied statistics, data mining or machine learning, take one course on the mathematical foundations of statistics, and complete three elective courses (nine hours) in statistics, machine learning, econometrics, etc. from the approved elective list. Only one introductory statistics course may count towards the certificate. No "credit by examination"  or "CR" coursework can be counted.

    Students must complete 18 semester hours of courses as follows in "Course Requirements."
