This module introduces students to basic statistical
concepts and methods that are used in solving
engineering problems. It aims to develop students’
ability to organise, describe, analyse, and present data.
Students will be able to compute the likelihood of an
event’s occurrence and the probable outcome of uncertain
situations with basic probability concepts. This module
will also cover common probability distributions such as
binomial, Poisson, exponential, standard normal, student’s t, F, and Chi-Square. As the course of the module
progresses to testing statistical hypotheses, Sampling and
Central Limit Theorem will be introduced. The emphasis
will then be on the students’ ability to conduct statistical
experiments and make inference from experimental data.
