Free seminar

for UoM staff and Graduate researchers

Students looking at a computer

This free seminar will discuss the principles of producing graphs to enhance the quality of your thesis and research presentations.

It will cover a software package freely available to University of Melbourne graduate research students and staff.

If you are frustrated about the quality of the graphs you are currently creating and how much time it is taking, this seminar is for you!

The first part will cover the principles.

The second part will cover practice, and will include a demonstration of Minitab software.

Software: Minitab

You may like to download Minitab software for the second session, but this is not essential.

You can download the Minitab software version 20 (for PC) here:

Minitab 20 is also available for Mac, but the current version does not have the full functionality for graphs that will be demonstrated using the PC version.

Mac users can access Minitab via myUniApps.

If you wish to use myUniApps, please make sure you have Citrix installed on your device.
