Effectively choosing, using, and understanding data is crucial for success, both in further engineering studies and future employment. EGR 190: Introduction to Data & Decision Sciences, a pillar of Duke Engineering’s signature undergraduate experience, reimagines how students can be introduced to foundational data problems. Students in this course, which is co-taught by Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mathematics faculty members Stacy Tantum and Paul Bendich, take new approaches to statistical analysis through challenges that involve messy, real-world data sets.
