Lecturer (for classes)
Lecturer/Associate (for practice)
Lecturer/Associate (for OTC)
ESPB 6.0 Status elective
Condition Mathematics 1 and Mathematics 2 (passed exams).
The goal Understanding applications of methods of Probability and Statistics in solving problems from real world, in particular in engineering problems. Enabling students to solve various real world problems, applying the metods of Probability and Statistics, determining the correct mathematical model, and performing related parameter estimation and testing hypotheses
The outcome A student will be familiar with basic and moderately complex discrete and continuous stochastic models. He/she will be able to apply correct models in real life problems, and to apply tools and methods of statistics and probability.
