That is how I felt at the end my undergrad career as well. Then I went to grad school and realized that what I thought was a sea looks like a drop compared to what is actually there.

that's the point ,,we need to learn more and more about stats..

Stats include lots of branches .. It's hard to be a specialist in all

I think the lack of response is due to the fact that people put this info (or whatever they want to share) in their profile. I work as a Senior QA Engineer for a large consumer packaged goods company.

It is interesting to note that as a statistician, I am supposed to be interested in studying and analyzing variation, but as a QA Engineer, I am being paid to abhor variation and design systems to eliminate and/or minimize it....

I am curious what you (and any other engineers!) use most by way of statistical methodology, and also

what statistical software is used most often in engineering settings. Any suggestions/comments/recommendations?

Undergrad at Sacramento State Engineering.. Work testing, analyzing, and characterizing experimental memory chips.

Learning Python.. still a noob tho.. Lots of MATLAB, usually for solving large systems of non-linear equations, and outputting pretty plots for my LaTex reports. But my job uses R, and I've been replacing many of my MATLAB workflows with R. (MATLAB is expensive and I'm too cheap to buy it for my personal computers.)

I like to think I have a fair grasp of the stats I use, but I'm firmly on the consumer end of the procedures. I'm the guy who takes your tools and abuses them.

As for what I do for a living, I work as a CNA right now. I'm hoping to be an RN in a couple of years though :3
