Hi,

I'm doing a Mech Eng degree but there is one part of my project which requires me to decide what type of statistical analysis to use. As I've got little experience in statistics (only done one module during my time in uni), I'm not too sure how to go about with this problem. My project supervisor is also abroad a lot of the time so it's hard to ask him questions when I run into problems, especially as term is ending very soon.

Anyway, where would be best place to ask for help elsewhere? If somebody can help me with the statistics problem, I will just edit this post with what my experiment involves in my project, or PM.

Thanks

Edit: Should say that I have already tried to look at some similar experiments done in the past but I can't get my head around it. I think a regression can be useful? I really dont know haha...

Hey, sorry to see you haven't had any replies to your thread yet. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific university or course forum should help get more responses.

If you haven’t already found it, then university connect is a really useful way for finding people at your course/university! You can also find a list of applicant threads and courses here. It's worth checking out if you have questions.

If you need advice on your academic work, then the Study Help section will be able to help you. Hope this helps!

Could it be useful to ask someone from the maths department perhaps at your uni? If you have such schemes where maths students can help out? They might be more equipped to guide you further.
