The
main purpose of this course is to provide the student with a
clear and thorough understanding of statistical methods and
techniques and their applications for engineering purposes.
Basically, the
course covers the following subjects : presentation and interpretation of
data, elementary probability concepts, random variables and probability
distributions, Estimation, tests of hypotheses for the one sample
problem, Simple and multiple linear regressions, application to engineering
problems.
The laboratory
session will be devoted to problem solving using the statistical software
"Minitab".
The
course is mainly based on brief presentation of the theory and
extensive applications in the various fields of engineering with
a particular focus on quality.
