One week short term course on Statistical Methods in Research Methodology

Developments in Science & Technology continue at an ever increasing pace in the field of manufacturing science, lean manufacturing, JIT Manufacturing, nano-technology, Design of Thermal Systems, Optimisation of resources etc. Keeping in perspective the need for original quality research and utilizing modern statistical tools for handling research data in most efficient manner a One week short term course on “STATISTICAL METHODS IN RESEARCH METHODOLOGY” was conducted from 4th to 8th June, 2018 (One Week) at Jawaharlal Nehru Government Engineering College, Sundernagar (HP) and organized by Mechanical engineering department, Punjab Engineering College (Deemed to be University) Chandigarh under TEQIP III.

The course aimed to provide the resources and know-how for the benefit of the students/faculty pursuing research. The course not only dealt with the problems on non-clarity of the application of research methodology but also other research related problems which the research scholars confront while during their research work.

This course was designed to impart knowledge on Research Methodology in the context of qualitative and quantitative methods along with training in Statistical packages across the various fields of Engineering and Social Sciences. The course enabled the researchers to formulate research design, developing conceptual framework, conducting field work and collection of data (Qualitative and Quantitative methods), data processing and management in MINITAB & MATLAB, Statistical techniques and interpretation of statistical output, preparation of interview schedule and questionnaires etc. Participants were also exposed to the knowledge on report writing and submitting project proposals.

The major thrust of the Short Term Course was on current trends in the Statistical Methods in Research Methodology and included  the following topics:

  • Parametric and Non Parametric Testing
  • Regression Analysis
  • Design of Experiments & Taguchi Methodology
  • Inferential Statistics
  • Response Surface Methodlogy
  • Application of Neural Network Techniques
  • Introduction of MINI TAB/MATLAB and Lab work
  • Research report and Project report  preparation

32 Participants attended this program . This included participants from JNGEC Sundernagar, SLIET Longowal, PEC Deemed University etc. The Course was inaugurated on 4th June by Director/Principal Prof. Raman Parti of JNGEC Sundernagar.  Dr. Vinod Kapoor Principal Mahatma Gandhi Government Engineering College (MGGEC) Kotla (Jeori), Rampur, Shimla was the guest of honour. They emphasised the need of scientific research in the present context in all the areas of education for developing the life of mankind and better technology for tomorrow. Prof. Inderdeep singh of IIT roorkee guest of Honour in Valedictory function on 8th June brought into focus the possible dangers of Plagiarism in writing and presenting the theses and project reports.
