Basic subjects play an important role in engineering education. Applied Statistics may be regarded as a basic subject as well as a technical subject, and occupies therefore a central place in agro-forestry engineer professional curriculum. Statistics is present in some proportion in our whole life. With the purpose of implementing new methods for statistical learning, in the framework of European Higher Education Area, an experimental proof has been started during a quarter of academic year 2004/05 of the third class in the Faculty of Forestry Engineers from Polytechnic University of Madrid. Methodology was oriented for students to improve capacities of oral expression, information search, use of recent technologies and experience in knowledge analysis and synthesis, together with acquisition of minimum knowledge required in the subject.
