Introduction to probability and Statistics

In today’s society, statistical thinking and technique are essential. Every discipline, including physical sciences, engineering and technology, economics, and social sciences, can benefit from it. Statistical methods are increasingly used in advanced research in electronics, electrical, computer science, industrial engineering, biology, genetics, and information science.

It is critical for pupils to become familiar with the subject of probability and statistics as early as possible. The purpose of this course is to introduce the subject to undergraduate and postgraduate science and engineering students.
