The integral character of the solution of the current scientific and economic tasks, as well as the high efficiency of the specialized methods that you/they are used to influence on the work objectives demands a high preparation as regards statistic on the part of the engineers. In the article it is systematized the formation and development of the statistical thought, as well as the necessity of a statistical literacy in superior education. It is also analysis object the scientific production associated with the statistical education in virtual environments of teaching-learning, in a specific way the strategies of teaching-learning of the statistic in the formation of the engineers and, finally they offer some recommendations of didactic actions for the statistical education in the formation of the engineers. The statistic as integrative subject one of the essential bases constitutes in the university student’s academic and investigative preparation, when offering him tools that optimize the production and the services, by means of the use of different technical, according to foreseen objectives; cooperating therefore to their integral formation. Keeping in mind that the statistical models constitute a fundamental tool of support to the taking of technical decisions linked to a certain problem outlined to the specialists when they are appropriately employees, it is important that the statistical formation that the engineers receive is wide and it requires besides a bigger articulation with the disciplines of the study plan that the students receive.
