The paper deals with the teaching of statistics to engineering students at tertiary level in South Africa. A number of suggestions are made in order to improve the statistical education of engineering students, thus potentially enabling future prospective engineers to optimise the power of statistics in their profession. Though the focus here is on suggesting ways to improve the statistical education of engineers at tertiary level, current changes in the school curriculum are eluded to, as this adds another dimension to early statistical education of future engineers.
