                Course Description

This course is an introduction to fundamentals
of probability, probability distributions and
statistical techniques used by engineers and
physical scientists. Topics include basic concepts
and rules of probability, random variables,
probability distributions, expectation and variance,
sampling and sampling distributions, statistical
analysis techniques, statistical inference –
estimation and tests of hypothesis, correlation
and regression, and analysis of variance.

                 Course Objectives

To prepare students with diverse technical
backgrounds and objectives with fundamental
probabilistic & statistical concepts, methods, and
techniques for use in continuing graduate studies
and in engineering & engineering management
through a balance of theory and application
involving engineering decision making, including
situations in which uncertainty and risk are
important. Emphasis is placed on problem
definition, solution and interpretation of results.

      Homeworks - Submission Guidelines

• Please submit the homework via blackboard
  system. Your id is your SMU id number. Your
  password is same as your SMU account
  password.
• For the submission problem, contact TA




                                                25
Homeworks - Submission Guidelines, continued

• MS Word, Excel and Power Point are the preferred
  file type for attachments. The equation editor is
  worth your time to learn. You can easily insert
  scanned images into these documents.
• Avoid scanning your work and sending it as a large
  image. This is an inefficient use of the internet.
  Make images 72 dpi, and use color only if
  necessary.
• Use color only if necessary, and do not use shading.
• Do not send zipped files, or other files which have
  been compressed. It is easier to optimize the file.
• These files may be printed, so please do not make
  the print area larger than 8.5” X 11”.

                 The 4+1 Master’s Degree Program
       The 4+1 Program permits the SMU Engineering student to
       study towards B.S. and M.S degrees simultaneously and
       possibly with fewer courses than if taken separately. Up to
       nine (9) SCH of graduate course work can be applied
       towards the undergraduate degree requirements. In such
       cases, students may fulfill both bachelors and masters
       degree requirements in as few as 21 SCH beyond the B.S.
       coursework.

       Roadmap to Multiple Masters Degrees with
                Fewer Total Courses
       SMU’s School of Engineering permits its graduate students
       to take advantage of degree-requirement overlaps to
       acquire a second Masters degree by taking as few as six
       courses (18 semester credit hours). This is available for
       prospective and current graduate students, as well as
       alumni who have already received a MS from SMU.
