Course Prerequisites

Title: Probability and Statistics


MAT101 Multivariable calculus and Differential Equations
To provide the mathematical support by way of probabilistic
models and statistical methodology to tackle problems
encountered in Science and Engineering applications.

Expected Outcome

Understand basic notions of probability arising in a variety
of uncertain situations which are nontraditional in areas of
science and engineering.
Knowing the basic tools of statistical methods
Emphasize the study of data analysis leading to
probabilistic models
