Statistics for Engineers (summer 2012)


This course was an introduction to probability and statistics. It covers common discrete and continuous 1-dimensional distributions, and does not require knowledge of fourier transforms or matrix algebra.

Notes cover essentially the same material as the lectures, plus additional examples and derivations:

  1. Probability theory
  2. Discreet random variables
  3. Continuous random variables
  4. Statistics and inference
  5. Regression and correlation
  6. Acceptance sampling
  7. Reliability and failure

These are available after the lectures and use PowerPoint 2010 (which can be viewed with PowerPoint Viewer). Due to animations some of these will not print out very well, but PDFs are also provided in case you can’t view PowerPoint. Odd numbered lectures are one hour, even numbered two hours.
