Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) consists of eight colleges, including Engineering and Science. An engineering student takes "core" math and science courses through the College of Science, and both basic and advanced engineering courses through the College of Engineering. This paper describes the collaborative efforts of a Professor of Statistics and a Professor of Mechanical Engineering to increase the motivation for engineering students to learn statistics, to increase the retention of
