This course gives an introduction to probability and statistics, with emphasis on engineering and management applications, for students with diverse technical backgrounds. Students learn the fundamentals of probabilistic and statistical concepts, methods, and techniques through a balance of theory and application involving engineering decision-making. This course focuses on analyzing and using data to understand situations and processes so decisions can be made under terms of variability and uncertainty. Students learn to read and interpret statistical literature; apply statistical methods in evaluating data; make decisions based on the data and analysis. Emphasis is placed on problem definition, solution, and interpretation of results.
